People Die, Life Goes On

I am a normal man,
I’ve been to more funerals than I can count,
Parents, Siblings, Friends, Co-Workers,
People die, life goes on

It’s different when the person is close to you,
Emotionally and Spiritually,
You feel like your life has ended,
People die, life goes on

Sometimes there isn’t a reason,
Sometimes people just die,
Heart attacks, strokes or even old age,
People die, life goes on

One thing I have realized is that,
Grieving doesn’t bring someone back,
The soul will always live on,
People die, life goes on

Life is a perpetual stream never ends beautiful write
I completely understand your viewpoint in this poem. It signifies the strength and understanding that I don't have. Excellent job. - insanely jealous, Yams
so true, the final stanza brought forth the tears and the confirmation of what I have always known in my heart of hearts, People die, life goes on....stunned by your insight, Tai
