Life and Death

A life can be destroyed quicker than it is created.
The beginning, cared for and planned,
The end, unwanted and unexpected

A life is taken quicker than made.
Nine months of warning, waiting, hoping,
Only a short time for goodbyes.

There is a lifetime to welcome a soul,
Plenty of time to meet someone new.
We never know the time we have left,
And often, goodbyes are left unsaid.

A life can be over before a single word is spoken,
Although so much care is needed to begin.
