Shining red A single life so brief and sweet red


A single life so brief and sweet,
A moment here, a moment gone,
A life begun, a life complete,
A candle lit, then out and done.

The joys of living, days of care,
The sorrows of loss, the bitter tears,
The moments shared, of love and prayer,
The moments of treasured years.

A life lived out, a life remembered,
Of moments both good and bad.
Though life’s short time has been dismembered,
It’s beauty still can be had.

It’s passion, drive, and spirit strong,
That will live on in all we do.
A single life, a single song,
That will never be outlived by you.
