TITLE: Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

ashes to ashes
dust to dust
our bodies
return
from whence
they come

eden is hidden
secreted away
but once in a while
she comes out to
play

eternity
is found
etched
on our hearts
yet were bound
to the earth
for better or
worse

and if for a moment
we enjoy life
abundant
its for but a time
played out
on this orb

for death keeps
to his
ultimate role
killing and
stealing
and tearing
huge holes

and our tie
to the earth
cannot be
ignored
we eat from
her hand
and drink
from her womb

the piper will call
the price will be paid
and into her arms
we all will
be laid

but only the body
did she
give a form
the worms may take it
while our spirit
lives on

our
breath
is from
God
and to
Him
we return
because
of the
priceless
covenant
ties

Thought-provoking! That's the whole meaning of our existance, isn't it? I'm glad we have eternity with God to look forward to.
