It’s Life That Lives Forever

It’s Life That Lives Forever

 

 

 

 

I don’t believe that death is permanent

I can’t afford to think so

When my last breath is immanent

I ask the Lord to let me know

He said eternal life is what we get

If we remember who we are

And better yet it’s never grim

As long as we remember Him

It’s life that lives forever

Throughout its changing forms

Like seasons change the weather

Life shifts the sands of storms

It understands and doesn’t move

Although we feel somehow

That all the motions we have made

Should prove to be us now

But that’s exactly what is shed

When once again we say we’re dead

All the time and movement drops

When we discover our heart stops

So let this not cause you dismay

You’ll have another heart someday

And next time ’round may you recall

That you are living through it all
