Life Can Be So Unpredictable

A millionaire many times over and materially quite a wealthy man
With dreams to become materially and financially wealthier for far greater things he did plan
In his early thirties with a beautiful wife and two young daughters and his best years of him ahead
One of the town's wealthiest people and much of him written and said
A man who was admired by many and his praises so many did sing
But life can be so unpredictable who knows what tomorrow will bring
Money can be such a huge asset but a long life to you will not guarantee
To plan for years into the future perhaps is not such a good idea
Good health it is most important the young multi millionaire became quite ill
He was diagnosed with leuchaemia a blood cancer destined for to kill
Anybody who falls victim to it his money his life could not save
The town's wealthiest young man is in the cemetery now in his grave
A millionaire many times over with great plans for the years ahead
But life can be so unpredictable and no future plans for the dead.
