Getting old I view death differently,

Recalling both the good days and the bad. 

Eventually, everyone will die

And death should be as momentous as birth

Tomorrow's sunrise grieves today's sunset.


Escaping the confines of the body

Souls seek out higher planes of existence.

Christ faced death before He was resurrected

And through death, we’ll gain life everlasting.

Ponder the worth of a world without death

Eternity would be boringly long. 


(Acrostic)
