The Way Life Goes

Sunlight-sparkle on the snow
That’s the way a life can go
Little ripple in a brook
Paragraph in time’s vast book

Little kiss and little love
Soon we fly to arms above
Like a petal on the breeze
Life; a wisp of memories

Half-breath whisper in our ear
So a life can disappear
Fragments slipping through our clasp
Gossamer we cannot grasp

Little you and little me
Pause before eternity
God is great and God is good
Help us live life as we should
