Stages

Stages

The gift of life has many stages you see,
 First the conception where we came to be
 Then comes the birth where in the world we enter
 Growing up falls then into the center

 The fourth stage is growing old, it can be a long haul
 Death is the finale, the end of it all
 To some it is welcome, they're just ready to go
 Tired of illnesses and feeling so low

 For the loved ones it is hard, in fact it's the worst
 Wondering why, to God they cursed
 Not realizing that it may be for the best,
 That the one they love is out of pain and finally at rest

 Some deaths are untimely and that is a fact
 A full life to live they may have lacked
 But everything is done for a reason, don't fear
 God must have needed them more than us here

 Rather than grieving and feeling so sad,
 We could celebrate the life that they had
 Just remember to pray and to take God's hand
 Because everything from the beginning has all been planned.
