Death comes to us all

Updated on August 14, 2011

Death comes to us all
that’s just the way the story goes
so therefore make the best of life
for when it comes you never know

Live for those moments
that make it worthwhile
the touch of your beloved
the smile of your child

The birds that sing
the flowers in the field
appreciate the beauty
that you see

Do not let darkness
overshadow your life
see the good around you
and don’t forget to smile

For life is a gift
that can be so fine
and it’s up to you
to make it Divine

For death comes to us all
that’s just the way the story goes
so therefore make the best of life
for when it comes you never know
