Life, when compared to eternity
is a sweet melody in the wind, half forgotten
before the notes finish playing,
it is a broken heart and rapturous smile,
a symphony of colors captured
by the Master artist, life is art
transient and fleeting,
time flies faster that a ripple
in the deep pool that is forever and ever.
Life, like earth is a tiny pinprick
of mountains and valleys and achingly beautiful sights
filled with Mt. Everest accomplishments
and Challenger Deep depression.
But even this, even earth’s majesty
is swallowed into the greatness of space.
How much greater then when we are
consumed not by cavernous cold or oppressive darkness
but welcomed with crushing bear hugs into the warm
embrace of eternity at the side of the Creator?
