Nothing Ever Dies

By Helen Steiner Rice

Nothing ever dies
that is not born anew -
The miracles of nature
all tell us this is true ...
The flowers sleeping peacefully
beneath the winter's snow
Awaken to the sunshine's warmth
when spring winds start to blow,
And all around on every side
new life and joy appear
To tell us nothing ever dies
and we should have no fear,
For death is just a detour
along life's wending way
That leads God's chosen children
to a bright and glorious day.
