Death, I think is really life
The living. I'd call dead
To leave this human mortal strife,
and in new paths be led

Death, I think is beautiful,
A new and happy home,
To live then with the father
And away you'll never roam

Death, I know brings sorrow,
And often drops a tear;
Then you think your end has come,
But it's only life that's near
