Sorrow is better than laughter
For by grieving, we’re improved.
Blessed be all who morn,
Till from sadness they’re removed.
After death our souls shall fly,
Perhaps from star to star,
Reaching our destination
To find heaven’s gate ajar.
God made us able to cry,
Sorrow teaches us to fear.
Those days were selfish and cruel
When life is so short and dear.
Time wipes tears from all faces
Whose hearts are tuned to sorrow.
Those that cry a thousand tears
Shall be blessed by tomorrow.
