The earth knows our time

Among thousands that came to farewell my cousin George at his funeral over a week ago was this young man. It was so interesting to watch him come up to the grave and stand there, mesmerised by what was before him. I wondered what was going through his young mind.

The earth knows our time 

We were born from the earth

For each of us, there is a clock ticking

The earth  provides all we need

And when she is ready, she takes us

Sometimes, we know we are ready

Sometimes, we may not know.

But she will be ready to take us

    That’s the mystery of life. Many fear to die but if you understand the purpose of life, you will be happy when it’s time to say goodbye.
