Watching the closing ceremonies and realizing that eventually all things come to an end. Just depends on the timing or the reason. For some things they are on schedule. For some things we are caught by surprise. At times we see it coming and deny it, but it happens no matter what we want.
There are times when things end
Like the closing ceremonies tonight
We new they were going to come
And the timing came just right.
There are things that end on time
Right on the schedule that was set
There wasn’t any reason to fear it
Even if we weren’t ready as of yet.
There are things that might surprise
Like the death of someone we love
This is not something we ever enjoy
But we can still feel them above.
There are times we see an end in sight
Knowing doesn’t always make it easy
To have a loved one choose to walk away
Leaves us feeling saddened and queasy.
However the closing of a chapter
Whether it be event, love or life
Can give us choices and emotions
We decide if it’s joy, acceptance, or strife.
