    On display for our inspection.

  17. 35. Short Life Summary

    • By Hgr
    • Published by Family Friend Poems October 2015 with permission of the Author.

    Life and death; without one there cannot be the other.
    For some, it's short, but they live it like no other.
    For most, it's long, and to be happy they don't ever bother.
    Life cannot be lived without the love of others.
