Do Not Be Afraid of Dying

There is a knock at your door
The Angels are coming to get you
You don't want to go, you must, it's your time

Don't be afraid, it's comforting,
Clear your mind, your heart, and your soul.
We go through life with many problems
Trying to search the unknown, places not familiar to us.

There are times we are unable to go on.
We are occupied by life's possessions,
We value things we must leave behind,
Cling to life with all it's hopes and dreams

We think there is always tomorrow and more to come
We have nothing to fear, we will have conquered it all
Only then you are able to leave this world,
And say we are not dead, just away
To a better place where eternity has no end, only a beginning
