I watch another setting sun, losing a loved one,
Yet I know this is commonplace.
It's hard to hear that they've gone,
Though death was their saving grace.

We all knew that this time would come,
Not wishing for the hour nor day.
Though life, like before, it carries on,
After they have passed away.

    OH MY!!!! What an amazing write. To my favs! This is so sad, and true. We like a flower, here today and gone tomorrow...only to be remembered by those whose lives we have impacted. Great work and if it is true to life, I hope that you are finding the grace and strength to cope.
