SONNET XXIII - FEARLESS

nobody knows what waits for us beyond
once time runs out for us and we are done
if asked of it no wiseman can respond
all they can say is death takes everyone
much hope is placed in heaven at the end
not simply fading into empty void
our souls are trusting that it's not pretend
that there's another life to be enjoyed
at best we only guess what's over there
for from this vantage point our eyes are blind
reality's around us everywhere
a curtain to the world of light we'd find
   i'm confident that heaven's really true
   death's only sting is saying bye to you
