“There Is a Sweet Hereafter” – Poetry


Fill your days with joy and caring

Wisdom, love, and laughter.

And always know, without a doubt,

There is a sweet Hereafter.


It is what you make of it.

The images of mind.

It is the limits of your soul

In boundless space and time.


It is the darkness or the light.

The strangeness and the learning.

The opportunities you missed

Distracted on the journey.


The slashing knife. The lovesick poem.

The faces and the words.

The cries and lies. The turns and tides.

The “music” that you heard.


The children that you never knew.

The friendships never had.

Reminders of the things you took.

The evil and the bad.


Yes, it is what you make of it

The soul behind the laughter.

So bear in mind – from time to time –

There is a sweet Hereafter.
