Oh, how precious you are.

Here one moment.

Gone in the next.

You are my greatest teacher.

You are my darkest fear.

I have learned to embrace your every blessing

And respect your every lesson and challenge.

You bring encouragement when I am troubled.

You bring wisdom as I grow in experience and maturity.

But, as with all life, death eventually comes.

This is the natural process

We should not fear

For each of us must pass this way eventually.

So, come, let us embrace

Life for all its worth

For it can be gone in an instance.
