The Worst Time To Die: Between Good Friday and Easter

by Jim Rapp

Life went on between Friday and Sunday;
some died, sure that all was lost.
Did they go, conceding that death at last
was victor – life the loser?

Of thousands who had started on the Way –
signed on 'spite daunting cost –
some, attending to His death, would miscast
the dying One a poser.

His death, entombed, gave credence to death's sway;
made dying seem less a loss,
and living too, a death too hard to mask,
a loss above all other.*

Did those who died before Easter Sunday
pass believing all was lost?
Were they glad that, in going, they, at last,
could leave behind earth's pother?
