Tears fall as people die,
putting an end to their life long ride.
As they plummet to their death,
hearts fall deep in others’ chests.
Whether deployed to Afghanistan
or just being who I am.
That day will come when we will die,
like that sunset in the sky.
But as we die we realize
that this life was a real lie.
And what waits us after this
is an eternity of full bliss.
So like that sunset in the sky,
we shall awake and we shall rise.
