Babies cry when they come into this world
     because they can't bring with them memories
          of their walks and talks with The One and Only God
               before He formed them in their mothers' wombs.

Our souls cry when loved ones leave this world
     because somehow deep down they know full well
          The Hands that made them so utterly wonderfully
 are waiting to hold them again in the garden so fair.

Our eternal eyes cry when we leave this world
     because they can see the heaven they once left behind,
          especially The Face that long gazed in love upon them,
               and because from Him they'll never have to leave again.
