From dust we came and will return;

it is life’s lesson that we learn.

From birth to grave time is short;

though we try the truth distort.

~~~~

For some life ends before begun;

others age long; life sweetly done.

In youth or age; it matters not;

Death is the promise not forgot.

~~~~

To celebrate or mourn the loss;

is left to loved ones bear that cross.

For life well lived with love and grace;

is not mourned with death’s embrace.

~~~~

From dust we came and will return;

it is life’s lesson that we learn.

Babes greet their life with loud cry;

aged greet death with gentle sigh.
