"Beyond The Living"  by Joe DiMino

Too often
We count our loses
Overlooking the abundance
Surrounding them;
And, even those loved,
Who time outruns
And all one’s hope
And prayers
Cannot redeem (irreplaceable),
Only the overtaking is perishable
For heaven re-embraces
(The stars much brighter
For our self giving),

As God first gave
Of His Self
For the mortal heart’s joy
Now we must trust
For the giving greater—
That love goes on
Bonds more sacred
And ever enduring
Beyond the living….
