As I sit upon the deck the sky dances before my eyes in a blaze of glory
the last hooray and the final bequest of the day – the end of another story
A story in the chapter of your life
what did you do today?
Get into strife?
Did you love enough?
Did you tell the one you love that you will love them always,
now, forever and all time?
Life is short; it passes in a blink of an eye.
When it comes to a close you may just ask, why?
Why did it come so quickly?
But he wasn’t even sickly!
With the sadness of the setting sun,
we can reflect upon,
we can wonder, ponder and justify
we can ask, why!
We can ask did we do all we could?
Did we love enough far and wide?
Did we learn all we should?
Did we ask of love of self and of others?
Did we give thanks for our sister and brother?
