What is Death

What is death?
I often ask,
Is it simply,
Gods final task.

To send the angels,
To take us home,
Back where stars shine,
And past generations roam?

Is it our last journey?
As we leave Gods earth?
We all have a date of death,
As we had a date of birth.

we were born to live,
But then we all must die,
Though its part of life,
So why do we cry?

When someone leaves,
To go back to sleep,
God loaned us them only;
They weren't ours to keep.

It's an unexplained question,
It's one nobody understands,
Until we reach our place,
On Gods higher ground.

Where we become our true selves,
Where life moulds us no longer,
People love us then lose us,
I guess it makes them grow stronger.

Life is a lesson,
Death is the last test,
We live and we learn,
Then we get laid down to rest.
