How can it end so quickly when it has only begun?
How can a tear fall, and lead to more than one?
How can you lose someone you love and carry a broken heart?
How can you think when your world is falling apart?
We are born, we live, we grow, and eventually death comes.
It is so easy to say, but how can we stand to lose someone?
To love without regret. A kiss, a hug, a call, an I love you so,
Please remember life can be short, can be sudden, and it is so hard to let go.
Love them. Hug them. Never worry about not having time,
Time is meaningless if you are being left behind.
We mourn for the dying, yet it is the living that have to cope,
Show them love, give them strength, share a world of hope.
