The Glorious Uncertainty - Poem by Francis Duggan

She did look so healthy everyone who knew her said
The one in her twenties is now with the dead
A broken hearted young man grieves for his to be wife
But then such are the glorious uncertainties of life
Her end came so suddenly she was not even sick
The Reaper claimed the breath of life from her quick
A massive heart attack she fell to the floor
She died a young woman three years with a score
She did not live to be married, raise children and grow old and gray
The glorious uncertainty of life some might say
The sun of tomorrow many will not see
Of the length of one's life there is no guarantee
She did look so healthy but looks can deceive
And her family and friends and her lover for her left to grieve.
