Life - Poem by Sally-Ann McDuff

Coming into this world as an unique one,
Just think your life has just begun,
You soon start to gargle and then talk,
One step, two step then you learn to walk,
You go on learning at school and college,
You fill your head with useful knowledge,
Soon you're at work in the world on your own.
Before long you'll have your own home,
Then along comes the big day of marriage,
Followed by a great honeymoon voyage,
Soon arrive the kids a girl and a boy,
They bring in your life so much joy,
Soon you end up turning another page,
This is as you start to reach old age.
But soon you must go and leave loved ones behind,
This is just part of the human kind.
