a Crossing

by Mary Ellen Smith

How well we understand the pain.
The flesh when gone is Heaven’s gain.

We set our sail from foggy shores
In weathered ships where water roars.

We near that blessed promised ground
That peaceful place in Jesus found,

Where wind and rain and storms blown past
Are put to rest at long, long last.

Amen to this hopefilled poem about death! When we are in Jesus it is a win/win situation!
