Life is Just A Moment Away

Updated on October 17, 2015

Came to the United States in 1962. First attended Rochester College in Rochester, MI. Graduated from Abilene Christian University, in 1966.


Life is just a moment away

From pain tragedy and death

Death is just a moment away

From joy happiness and life

In the moment then

Whether life or death abounds

Find meaning that will rob

Death of its immortality

And life of its mortality

Can this, then, not be

Life's victory

And death's defeat?

The moment then becomes immortal

With the fullest expression of life.
