Before we are who our families meet,
and our friends know,
and our partners embrace,
we are complete.
Completely made ready
by the One who was and is and ever will be.
Can the end of our days ever be welcome?
A just dessert,
a welcome respite,
a final resting place?
We are created to reach beyond the end,
to grasp even for that which we cannot see.
Touching it completes us,
even as it loved us completely
