The Curtain Falls

There comes a time for all of us when we must say good-bye .. But faith and hope and love and trust, can never, ever die. Although the curtain falls at last, is that a cause to grieve? The future’s fairer than the past, if only we believe. And trust in God’s eternal care, so when the Master calls .. Let’s say that life is still more fair, although the curtain falls.
