Ashes to Dust
Ashes to ashes, and dust to dust, eternal sleep, for the rest of us. The light of day, a candle extinguished… we won’t give up, we won’t relinquish. It’s sad but true, that all lives end, we’ll keeping on striving, because we don’t know when. But we’re only mortal, faint and fleeting, ephemeral sorrow, like a passing greeting. We’re only human, and this sadness is real, this too shall pass, so pause, and feel.
