Do the good die young?

Only the good die young?
That's open for debate.
Do the great take their place?

For Pete's sake,
I've been face to face
with the pearly gates.

That doesn't make me prodigious.
I'm just stating the obvious.
I think it's fate.
I believe it's a planned escape.

When your work has been carried out,
then soon will come,
your time to be carried out.

Sometimes,
the good die young?

    I have relatives who died young and they were good indeed,yet dying is a moment engraved on our palm,Let me debate with you :),I don't see us dying,I see me'as snow white'asleep,then kissed by God who loved me from before I was born,I feel me kissed,then awakened to a beautiful garden full of fragrant flowers..away from world's daily hassle.We weren't born to die,This is my belief,of course. .Great subject Matt,much enjoyed. .Celene!
