One Death - Poem by Christian Eliab Ratnam

Though a thousand years live one man.
Though a thousand books he read.
Though a thousand things plan one man.
Though a thousand races he raced.
Though a thousand mountains scale one man.
Though a thousand seas he swam.
Though a thousand sorrows has one man.
Though a thousand blessings in life.
Though a thousand loved ones has one man.
He but one death may die!
