The Beauty of Life and Death

The beauty of Your eyes as You look upon me is breathtaking.

As I gaze into them I am lost in pools of time.

I travel the universe with You.  The stars become not a whole,

But individual as You name them all.

The beauty of space is overwhelming.

You make me aware of one particular planet.

My eyes rest upon it and its beauty is beyond words.

A jewel among jewels.

It is here You chose to breathe upon it

Causing it to pulsate with life.

It is here You created an image of Yourself

Through one man.

Through this one man came life and death.

Death stalked the planet

And became life’s greatest enemy.

Your love for life was so great

You sent Life itself to destroy death.

To do so, Life had to die.

In that one great act,

Immotrality cried out

O death, where is thy sting?

O grave, where is thy victory?

My journey ends as it began,

Gazing into your beautiful eyes.

I had been lost in time

As I was lost in you.

Because I have accepted Life

Death cannot claim me

And I will forever live in You and You in me.
