People Die, Life Goes On - Poem by Thomas Vaudin

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

    I completely understand your viewpoint in this poem. It signifies the strength and understanding that I don't have. Excellent job. - insanely jealous, Yams (Report) Reply
