DEATH AIN’T JUST A CASE OF DYING

DEATH AIN’T JUST A CASE OF DYING, NO JUST DYING OUT, NOT JUST DEAD AND GONE, LIFE IS CONNECTED TO IT THE OTHER END OF IT, HAND AND HAND TOGETHER, SO, SHAKE IT’S HAND, HOLD ON TO IT, WHILE WE CAN, SO, WE CAN SHARE ALL THIS TIME WITH EACHOTHER, DO WE ALL GO TO WHERE ALL THOSE GONE ON BEFORE HAVE GONE TO OR DO WE JUST DISAPPEAR INTO NOTHING, NO ONE REALLY KNOWS, DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU CHOOSE TO BELIEVE. LIVING IS PART OF IT, TOO, TRY TO REMEMBER, DON’T FORGET THOSE MOMENTS, THOSE TIMES SPENT WITH THOSE, NOW, DEAD, SOMEHOW KEEP IT ALIVE, INSIDE OF YOU, BUT, ONE DAY, NO ONE WILL REMEMBER ANY OF US, SO, UNTIL THE FINAL CURTAIN DROPS, DON’T GET SCARED OF IT, DON’T RUN FOOLISHLY TO IT, ALL WILL COME TO THE DOOR OUTTA HERE, THAT, WE ALL FIND, THE TRAAVEL TO GONE, WELCOME IS A GOODBYE, HELLO IS A GOODBYE, AIN’T IT, SO TRUE, WE’LL MEET AGAIN, WE MAY BECOME RECYCLED PARTS, SPIRITS CHANGING FORMS, IT IS A CIRCLE. LIKE MAYBE THIS IS THE NEXT LIFE, ALREADY, OR WE WILL SEE ANOTHER TIME, AS SOMETHING OR ANOTHER! THAT’S WHY, NOW, IS, SO, IMPORTANT!
TO ENJOY AND APPRECIATE IT, FOR WHATEVER IT IS! AND, DOES IT MATTER ONE WAY OR ANOTHER? DEATH AIN’T JUST A CASE OF DYING!
