Then We Die

THEN WE DIE First we are born into life A life that may be filled with strife We may take a husband or wife Life passes by We may live for ninety years And shed oh so many tears As we deal with all of life's fears Yes, we cry Our life may be filled with bliss From the warmth of our mate's first kiss Our mate dies, you can count on this Then we die 10 June 2020 For the contest sponsored by Charles Messina

Thank you, Aditi! I certainly intend to keep writing. Especially when I see people such as yourself who enjoy what I write, and are kind enough to say so in great comments such as yours.

Oops! Hello my friend. Curtis, this would have placed higher but unfortunately you were supposed to use 2 lines with a tail, you used 3 lines with a tail. None the less...great poetry! Hope all is well dear friend. Charlie

Thanks, Jan! I tried to incorporate Charlie's idea and instructions into this form that is new and strange to me. You were a great help in it all. I appreciate your support, and I value your continued friendship.

Thank you, Mahtab! This was an entirely unfamiliar form for me but I decided to tackle it. Hopefully, it will make a good showing in the judging.
