“…and the dead in Christ will rise first.” 1 Thessalonians 4:17

Crier, Trumpeter and Caller,
who descends from heaven
above overflowing graveyards
with the declaration,
Death is not final,
come down gently
upon the softened shoulders
of those who grieve 
a daughter that left the land
too early, for in our hearts
she still lives.
