Lifetime - Poem by Kevin East

Cry now, but smile for a lifetime
Mourn this hour but celebrate the years
Memories will be sunny and words bring smiles
Through the tears.
The afternoons of summer, the evening's winter frost
Relationships grow number it's how we pay the cost
But then the times you shared
The sketch book in your soul
Will show that you both cared
Before time took its toll.
So celebrate a lifetime
The pain will bring some doubt
But remember lovelight flicker
When candlelight goes out.
Together in the world that teaches smile and kill
Together now in spirit
The union closer still
The guilt that we all feel
Devoid of hug and kiss
Shows us our love is real
When each other now we miss.
So celebrate this lifetime
Remember how it was
Let sadness not overwhelm you
You see people, it's because
Love will sting you deep
Some hearts they seem so hard
But then they start to weep
As emotion drops their guard.
