People Die, Life Goes On


I am a normal man,
I’ve been to more funerals than I can count,
Parents, Siblings, Friends, Co-Workers,
People die, life goes on

It’s different when the person is close to you,
Emotionally and Spiritually,
You feel like your life has ended,
People die, life goes on

Sometimes there isn’t a reason,
Sometimes people just die,
Heart attacks, strokes or even old age,
People die, life goes on

One thing I have realized is that,
Grieving doesn’t bring someone back,
The soul will always live on,
People die, life goes on

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
