Life Was A Song You Would Sing


Life was a song you would sing
In your warm, beautiful way,
From the moment you first drew breath
Until your last mortal day.

Every morning you would rise,
Filled with hope, just as a bird,
And with an optimistic mind,
Make your way through the world.

Always a spring in your step,
You would walk, long and tall,
Singing a quiet song in your heart
Of life's joys, great and small.

There were times sorrow came,
When your heart yearned for peace,
But even then, not for one day
Did your melody cease.

Full eighty-seven years -
A blessed life - you were given;
At rest it seemed you were still singing -
As a pure angel of heaven.

    Everyone who has lost a loved one needs to have the opportunity to read this poem at their funeral. I would be so honoured if my family used this poem at the end of my life. I shall share this poem with friends. (Report) Reply

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
