Destiny

We are appointed a day to be born and a day to die
 In this journey called life
When  the good  die young, we always ask "Why"?

Many lives are filled with heartache and strife
 Is it  destiny  that some people  die young
In this journey called life

Who becomes the hero, and who remains unsung
Abiding both in joy and sorrow
 Is it destiny that some people die young

No one can promise  us tomorrow
We take life  one day at a time
Abiding both in joy and sorrow

Some are taken in their prime
Some leave  us too early,  taken  too soon
We take  life one day at a time

We fade in and out like phases of the moon
We are appointed a day to be born and a day to die
Some leave us too early,  taken too soon
When the good die young we always ask "Why"?

    Thank you Joseph. I just lost my 25 year old nephew to a motorcycle fatality and I will show your poem to my sister as I think it will help her to stop asking why. Thanks again and Congratulations on your win.......
