A Puzzle

It is now time to say goodbye
Without evening knowing why
The world has not ended, but my watch has stopped
You will now need to pick up the pieces... that I have dropped

See life is like a puzzle, often hard to complete
Life can be a trauma or life can be a treat
But you must remember your strength and how fast life does go
Forget all the woes and watch everything grow
