is the inevitable
the last milestone to life.

but to die young
as children
is a devastating and unfair

life is precious
and only given once.
to have only a few, beautiful years
under the belt
is heart-wrenching
and no child should have to face that fate.

  1. I don't know how I am going to deal with watching a child who is dying. It's hard enough to watch old people die, but children are heart wrenching.
