We Forget Eternity

We forget eternity and languish in fear,
drop into despondency, break off hope
and forget the light, forget the joy
a free soul flies to when free of sickness
and fear and hatred and most of all,
when free of death's lonely touch. 

If we could see, really, really see-- then
we would see this life as a moment, a
single dream forgotten on awakening,
till we fall asleep again and dream,
dream once more...and for those who
shake the darkness from their souls,
bathe in the luxurious light of eternity,
their dreaming will be done and they
will have awakened for evermore....
