The World
To Come
The Hassidim tell a story about
the world to come that says
everything there will be
just as it is here.
Just as our room is now,
so it will be in the world to come;
where our baby sleeps now,
there too it will sleep in the other world.
And the clothes we wear in this world,
those too we will wear there.
Everything will be as it is now,
just a little different.
