Life Goes On

There are some things in life that we have to accept
One being that not all things can last forever
As a tree that gives us the shade and pleasure
Many die way too soon, even when close by a river.

We can care for it the best we know how
We can supply all the care as it grows
But whether natural or damage or something else
Too often it withers, for what reason who knows.

Too often those we care for in our life
Will succumb as did the tree to pass away
Try as we might to keep that love alive
There comes a time with nothing left to say.

So we mourn the passing though we still miss it
Who knows if another will ever grow in its place
Memories and pleasures will keep it alive at times
Then we store them away and turn away our face.

    “Many die way too soon, even when close by a river.” I love it. It’s so true. You can put ALL your love in a relationship and only get hurt 😦
    I understand the pain.

    We all lose loved ones quicker than we choose; it’s very difficult always losing them and there are always going to be constant reminders. The rawness heals but the memories go on. Keep those alive the best you can without getting bogged down. in them if you can. Life moves forward at a rapid pace. I know you are hurting in more ways than one. My thoughts and prayers are with you . Beautifully written poem about life. Thanks once again for sharing
