I lived in New York when I wrote this poem. I wrote it about a year prior to 9-11-2001. After I wrote the poem I needed a picture to go with it and I became deeply inspired to photograph the twin towers in Manhattan to use it as my background picture. To get a good view of the twin towers, my fiancée (now my wife) and I traveled to New Jersey across the Hudson river facing the Manhattan skyline. It was a fun creative working date. Check out the picture posted with the poem here. it's a picture of me with my hands spread out like wings spanning the twin towers in the background. In retrospect I can see the prophetic nature of this poem as it was completed prior to that tragic and devastating event. The message is still very strong and relevant and probably will be until the end of time as we know it.

Souls Passing Through

 

We are souls passing through.
We will all leave this world behind;
there is a better place for me and you,
where we will find perfect peace of mind.

It is called heaven, our eternal home.
In the Father’s house there are many mansions;
Jesus Himself will all His children welcome
to paradise, a place of numerous dimensions.

We are souls passing through.
Our hearts must cling to the everlasting!
Eternity awaits me and you;
forever we will reign with our King!

We are souls passing through.
We have tasted and seen that the Lord is good;
we must stay on the path that is true,
and despise wickedness, hatred, and falsehood.

We are souls passing through.
We must choose to love and turn from strife;
the will of the Father you and I must do;
Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
