There are times when people pass on and you wonder…
Was it that we didn’t pray enough?
Was it that we waited too long to pray?
Was it this and was it that?
Then it dawns on you once again!
That The Scourge of Death,
Though a most unwanted visitor,
Is the only certainty in the cycle of life.
And will call at His own time!
Like seasons come and go,
So does the life cycle of man!
Rest in peace, my lady.
Your absence will be felt.
