Between the Eternities

2006 Poetry

Between the Eternities

Before we are born

we exist in eternity,

waiting for

that magical spark

that ignites us to life.

We then begin our journey,

traveling through time.

Meeting other souls

along the way,

making connections

and sharing our lives.

Till that day

when it all comes to an end.

For some that may be a very short trip

and for others a much longer one,

though in the grand scheme

it's all a blink of the eye.

Once ended we then exist

in eternity once again.

"From birth to death we travel between the eternities."

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I heard this phrase in a TV movie about the old west and thought I would write something to it.
