So many tear drops have fallen

During so many losses

Grandparents, Parents

Who all lived  long and  good lives

Losses we were prepared to face

A sadness  we knew  would come

We  cried  when we said farewell

To those who taught us so much

About life, living, and what's really important

Yet there are tears shed 

That leave many  of us wondering why

Like the younger sister  losing  her fight with  Cancer

Or the  Sons lost  before they  ever saw 

the sunrise or a sunset

Or a Son who  fought a good fight

But at 17 left us behind with

Memories of all his dreams never fulfilled

That  BlackHawk crash that took so many

On a distant mountain top

Who left us behind remembering  their words

Don't worry we will be fine

Life is such a mystery

We never know when it will bring us to our knees

We never know what is  ahead of us

But many of us have learned

Life moves on and so must we

We must cherish that which is still with us

Live and love as if it were our last day

Or maybe the last day of those we love

No should , would or could have

Should we live any day with

We  should  always  cherish and care for

What makes our world  bright

Those who make life special

Because if lthey are taken from us

We must move on and live our life
