A tear at my death

is like raindrops for the stars,

as I believe in life, not death.

“I believe in the Kingdom of God,

And the promises made in the Bible.

I believe that with God’s will,

life shall go on.

“Someday, you may catch a glimpse

of a butterfly landing on a flower.

Or of a bird

softly settling on a branch.

“It may be me,

stopping by to say His word

is true.

As I am part of God’s Kingdom,

I did not die and neither shall you.”
