    Six feet into the ground
    That's where bodies rest or lay
    After the souls have departed from them
    And gone their destined way
    And left many alive and in this world
    Confused as to what has gone down
    Many minds and hearts stay clouded in confusion
    Behind a smile, a blank stare or a frown
    Left in a cloak of darkness
    Of emptiness and gloom
    With just a plethora of questions
    And empty space and room
    That needs to be filled with understanding
    And wisdom to enhance continued living
    With age old lessons of sages
    Fortified with meaningful giving
    And harvesting the good from living seconds
    With inner eyes keeping well in sight
    The love of the Creator through serving human kind
    And moving always in the right
    The Creator's Grace and Mercy saves us in this earth
    And receives us when we have departed this life
    In a state much superior in a state of rebirth
    For those blessed to see in this life
    Clearer sight in a new existence, discerning
    "Surely from the Creator we all have come
    And to the Creator we all are returning"
    It matters not the length of a life
    It's the quality that paves the way
    When asked how long we tarried
    Our answer, "just a day or part of a day"
    From the time that we entered into this world
    This thing was certain no matter that we cry
    We all who live to understand have to witness the death of others
    And one day we too will die
    Without knowledge, that death looks final
    Like a time of an end to all
    But it's really a returning, obedience to the call
    Into another existence not seen from this life
    For which the wise prepare themselves it's clear
    As evidence has always pointed it out
    This returning is promised and sure
