If a tiny baby could think,
She would be afraid of birth.
To leave the only world she has known
Would seem like a kind of death.
But immediately after birth, the child
Would find herself in loving arms,
Showered with affection and cared for
At every moment.
Passing through death is really
A birth into a new and better world.
Those who are left behind should not grieve
As if there was no hope.
Our loved ones live on in a world
Beautiful beyond anything we can imagine.
There they wait until the day comes
When they will welcome us with joy.
