MYSTICAL POEMS: “Deathless” By Ella Wheeler Wilcox




There lies in the centre of each man’s heart

A longing and love for the good and pure;

And if but an atom, or larger part,

I tell you this shall endure—endure—

After the body has gone to decay—

Yea, after the world has passed away.

The longer I live and the more I see

Of the struggle of souls toward the heights above,

The stronger this truth comes home to me:

That the Universe rests on the shoulders of love;

A love so limitless, deep, and broad,

That men have renamed it and called it—God.

And nothing that ever was born or evolved,

Nothing created by light or force,

But deep in its system there lies dissolved

A shining drop from the Great Love Source;

A shining drop that shall live for aye—

Though kingdoms may perish and stars decay.

  2. Perfect picture with this profound poem. I completely agree with Ella, where are we going to keep our belongings and our family and whatever possessions we have made. Everything has to be dropped here and we will go empty handed and we as this Soul has died upteem number of years and have come back in this body thousands of time. Lovely, Amira.


    1. So true dear friend… we return to our Source, just like when we were born, empty handed from material possessions but richer in experiences and hopefully a little more mature spiritually! LOL! 🙂 ❤ ❤ ❤


      1. Yes completely true and more mature spirituality. Love and light to you dear Amira ♥️♥️♥️♥️
