Life Goes On - Poem by harrison smith

When your energy goes
Your lights go dim
It happens to her
It happens to him

When the lights go down
The drama will start
They've done all they can
For your worn out heart

When the real drama starts
It's the end of one life
She leaves her husband
He leaves his wife

It's the end of one life
It's the start of another
So why do we fret?
It's really no bother

When starting afresh
It's best to be hopeful
The next life is better
So why are we doleful?

Topic(s) of this poem: life and death
