Something More......

You disappear; a ripple washing up on the vast shore
Here; like a little moment then gone forever more
But all the ripples together form the great big sea
And all the moments make a lifetime and eternity

I feel so small as I view the sea and the sky
My life is but a speck of sand in the eternal eye
Enough, enough of all this useless worry
Tis but a sequence of seasons in one life story

All existence returns at last to sleep within the earth
The daffodil will bloom and die on graves of lost self-worth
The rich and poor together share the same hillside of dirt
The red sun sets upon a silent field of love and hurt

Success and failure lay together in the soil
Kings and beggars take to death the same amount of spoil
God, I am so thankful that you give us something more
The hope of life eternal when this little life is o’er

For the wages of sin is death
but the gift of God is eternal life
