Too Soon


This was a life

That had hardly begun

No time to find

Your place in the sun

No time to do

All you could have done

But we loved you enough for a lifetime.


No time to enjoy

The world and its wealth

No time to take life

Down off the shelf

No time to sing

The song of yourself

Though you had enough love for a lifetime.


Those who live long

Endure sadness and tears

But you’ll never suffer

The sorrowing years:

No betrayal, no anger,

No hatred, no fears,

Just love – only love – in your lifetime.


Mary Yarnall (1955-)
