Death...In Memory of Troy

Death gives no reason when it comes
And often without warning
It chooses one still far too young
To turn our hearts to mourning

Death does not regard prominence
As its appointment severs
Mortal ties of family, friends
And changes lives forever

Death, who can tell how near or far
Our own appointment hovers?
Pray we choose then to live each day
As though life soon is over

I did not know Troy personally but...
...suddenly he is every parent’s son as every parent mourns. A horrific crash on the week-end involving three local youth claims the life of one.
