Summary

How soon man passes away
The time taken from life to death,
Though looks small, has length
And to complete, it takes a long way.

The sight of a new born in a cradle,
Shows the life after every death .
The cry of every new born baby,
Is the cry of every old man’s faith.

When youth comes in picture,
There is freedom and frankness.
Which teaches us to live for future,
Where there is nothing but sadness.

When man grows in wisdom
And learns to settle in living,
There comes the evil mind of money
Trying to achieve everything.

When man grows old and weak
Preparing his grave for his coming days,
Gets aware of his life that he seeks
And eager to live in every possible way.

How soon man passes away

The time taken from life to death,

Though looks small, has length

And to complete, it takes a long way.

The sight of a new born in a cradle,

Shows the life after every death .

The cry of every new born baby,

Is the cry of every old man’s faith.

When youth comes in picture,

There is freedom and frankness.

Which teaches us to live for future,

Where there is nothing but sadness.

When man grows in wisdom

And learns to settle in living,

There comes the evil mind of money

Trying to achieve everything.

When man grows old and weak

Preparing his grave for his coming days,

Gets aware of his life that heseeks

And eager to live in every possible way.
