A life gone before it happened
Dreams unachieved
Gone to enrich the soil
Education unschooled
So many stories unshared
Tears of a pained mother
A life cannot be replaced by another
A flower lost before it bloomed
An innocent life is doomed

Life is too short
And yet death cannot be ignored
We can run but we can never hide
A life swallowed by death and its pride
We live, we learn life
We die, we pay the price

A baby born
A baby gone
Gone too soon
Like thunder in the noon
A candle that never shed a light
A star that never shined bright
Swallowed by the predators of the night
A young soul that never lived life
