A Dirge is Better

By J. Randal Matheny

A dirge is better than a party tune,
The wake reminds us that our time comes soon;
From birth the reaper knocks upon our door,
Fast do the falling sands in the hourglass pour.

None can live a day until we face
The hour of death and our eternal place,
For only he who’s fully prepared to die
Can know the joy of hope in the sad goodbye.
