This really is the most beautiful
explanation of death I've ever heard.


A sick man turned
to his doctor as he was preparing to

Leave the examination room
and said,

'Doctor, I am afraid
to die.

Tell me what lies on the
other side..'

Very quietly, the
doctor said, 'I don't know..'

'You don't know?
You're, a Christian man,

and don't know what's on
the other side?'

The doctor was
holding the handle of the door;

On the other side came a
sound of scratching and whining,

And as he opened
the door, a dog sprang into the room

And leaped on him
with an eager show of gladness.

Turning to the
patient, the doctor said,

'Did you notice my

He's never been in
this room before.

He didn't know what
was inside..

He knew nothing except
that his master was here,

And when the door
opened, he sprang in without fear.

I know little of
what is on the other side of death,

But I do know one

I know my Master is
there and that is enough.'
