Just as there can be no light without darkness

and no joy without pain,

A life without death

would be a world drowned in vain.


For though death is painful

and too hard to swallow,

A life with no end

would be too filled with sorrow.


Death may be tearful

and tormenting to the heart,

but it teaches us the gratitude

from which humans shouldn't part.


So even though no one

truly wants to die,

it's a peaceful necessity

that punctuates "good bye".
