Just As Those Before Us

 

We’ll lie at rest as our parents doDSCN1584 - Copy (3) - Copy

And their parents before them…

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

Just as those before us.

 

Footsteps above come and go…

remembering…wishing…regretting.

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

Just as those before us.

 

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

While blindly saying

In God we trust

Just as those before us.

  1. Sweet and poignant! My father’s death a few years back brought home the reality of how short life on this earth really is. Funny how you know something with your head, but you can learn it a whole new way with your heart! ~ Sheila
