One Day

One day
this picture of happiness,
of family gathering
will be no more.

One day
we will gather again
but instead of joy
there will be sorrow.

One day
there will be a passing,
someone will be gone
and the rest will mourn.

I don’t
want to think in such a way
but as I watch everyone
grow up and grow old.

I know
that the time will come
where we’ll be saying
hello as we say goodbye.

One day.

I've experienced death recently and the saying goodbye is easier than the living on. Great poem and so realistic!
