death is but a word to some

but for others its a cruel reality.

but it is also never really the end

for as one door opens,

another door must close

so goes the way of life.

it may seem like the end

but in all truth

its just a new begining.

live life to the fullest

so that there are no regrets

in death.

just know that as one life is taken

another is born into the world

to take its place.

everything has a balance

and death is a part of that balance,

its hard, i know, but it was never ment to be easy.

so as that door in front of you opens

and you step inside

dont look back and wonder what could have been

if you had chosen the door that now has closed.

life is also but a word

a word known by all,

if only for a short time.

from the new born infant

to the old gray haired couple

they all have breathed the air,

they all have felt the blood running through their veins,

they all have seen the things around them.

and they all have known life

just as some day

they all shall know death.
