For those who knew them well.
But when the dead in two years number three,
A sad story indeed it does tell.
I didn't know any of them at all,
But it still puts things into perspective.
One day they're here, the next they just fall;
This life can be very deceptive.
We do not know how much longer we'll last;
Tomorrow is never certain.
This fragile being that goes by so fast
May soon see the final curtain.
Live to the fullest, while you are still here;
Live without any regret.
Live without doubt, without waste, without fear,
For this may be all you get.
Where these three souls are now, I know not,
Nor how all works out in the end.
But we must hope and pray with all that we've got,
And trust in God's love to amend.
