Spiritual Poems about Death

Death Poetry

Death is life's greatest mystery. What happens when our soul leaves our body is the most important question in the world. The answer will affect how we live our lives. The world is plagued with the question of what comes after this. When we are faced with the death of a friend or relative, we are stunned with grief. We don't understand, he was here and now he's not, where did he go? Where does the spirit go? The truth is that our soul knows of its eternal nature. If we ask our souls this question in a real way, we will find that we know that we are made from the stuff of eternity.

    I feel the warmth upon my face as I enter the land of God's good grace,
    Friends and loved ones gone before, waiting here beyond the door.
    With open arms they welcome me, amazement in my eyes they see.
    They look so well and at their best, beauty beholds them now they rest.
