Rest In Peace

“Rest in peace,” how much this says,

Be free of pain no more to weep.

Find joy that never ends, possess

New life that here you could not keep.

“Rest in peace,” and though we grieve,

Reaching out your hand in vain,

Our faith is such that we believe

That all of us shall meet again.
