On Living and Dying



The death of a loved one, a woman or man

Is not something for which we’re able to plan.

We’re born to live and eventually will die,

Life is a big gift and a time to feel high,

It’s not always easy and not always tough,

But for sure eventually, it will all be enough.

The key is to nurture and build self esteem,

Do what we say and say whatever we mean.

Listen to the music and hear all the sounds,

Build up a legacy and know where we’re bound.

Cherish the freedom and liberty to speak,

Be mindful of others and help out the weak.

Stay alive while living and be ready to die,

as a person of meaning, with love in our eyes.

Whatever happens and wherever we go,

Find peace in knowing it’s all part of the flow. 

Enjoy all the moments, days, weeks and years,

Let go of anxieties, worries and fears.

Life is our paradise, both cloudy and clear,

Death leaves our spirit both far away and near.
