There is no night without a dawning,
no winter without a spring,
And beyond death’s dark horizon
our hearts once more will sing.
For those who leave us for a while
have only gone away
Out of a restless, careworn world
into a brighter day
Where there will be no partings
and time is not counted by years-
Where there are no trials or troubles,
no worries, no cares, and no tears.
Helen Steiner Rice said it so well in the poem, let God’s promise soften our sorrow and give us strength for tomorrow.
