Dying young


Sometimes its hard
to understand why
Someone so young
should have to die

No reasons are given
It just happens that way
There's nothing we can do
Nothing we can say

Our time here on Earth
We will transcend
Here is not forever
And life doesn't end

There is a place
Through an 'open' door
It will be familiar
For we've been there before

So don't dwell on death
For its not the end
Spirit is eternal
my dear, dear friend
