O, Can You See?

Rest your head
   upon His breast.
Leave this place
   of worry and regret.

There's no wonder
   that you would leave behind.
Leave the thunder
   for the only One who's kind.

O, can you see
   beyond earth's ranges?
Why do we love this life?
Go to Him, please,
   beyond earth's ranges.
All you leave is strife.

We're so selfish
   we mourn for ourselves.
In Spirit so impish
   we forget our Help.

There's no wonder
   no beauty to leave behind.
Throw life asunder
   for the only One so kind.

O, can we see
   beyond earth's ranges?
Why do we love this life?
Go to Him, please,
   beyond earth's ranges
All we leave is strife.

Leaving the body,
   alive unto Him.
Leaving vanity,
   things born of sin.

We're so selfish
   we run for our lives.
We're so helpless
   lost in fear's lies.

O, we must see
   beyond earth's ranges?
Why do we love this life?
Go to Him, please,
   beyond earth's ranges
All we leave is strife.

Written as I recall my ex-fiance who just passed away this Thanksgiving. Please pray for her family, especially her 22 year-old daughter who was very close to her.

Thank you...
