Yesterday I had a shock. I eagerly searched for a number in my old phone diary. I waited to hear the voice of my friend, and learned to my horror she was no more. Knowing fully well that no one can escape death, I had never thought that she will die so soon. The person who talked to me didn’t know any details.
Another sad happening last year was the divorce of my son. It devastated him, and the children, but life goes on.
New years come, and old years go
Those who were here had to go
Leaving memories sad behind
No tears can bring them back beside
Seeing my son’s heartbreak was a pain
Why did it happen was his agonized refrain
There weren’t easy answers he could gain
His life got changed, nothing was the same
Life is fickle, life is short
In a moment all get lost
Gather joyful moments to your heart
In life’s journey they will last
