The sun shines and the sparrows chirp
Though deaf are the ears and blind are the eyes in grief.
Days become eternal nights blackened by sorrow
As they plunge a dagger into the souls abyss.
Let not the shadows consume this life
For death is natural and inevitable and will always be.
No gauntlet may stop the Reaper’s journey;
Fate has ordained this since the beginning of time.
Try as we might to ward off the ravages of destiny
We will succumb as others before us have done.
“There are no guarantees in life” a wise man once said,
But he was wrong, there is one absolute in life…
That we most certainly will die.
