In Memory of Grandma (Virginia Sargent)
by Christopher Siegler (3-15-99)
Sometimes I wonder why we're here
Or do we all have a fear.
Some people don't talk about this
All they need is a hug and kiss.
Some people want to sit and cry.
Some people will wish to fly.
All I know is we all get love
From friends, from family or the heaven above.
There is only thing that is fair,
Everyone seems to care.
It doesn't seem fair, not at all
For everyone has to fall.
I wonder if others will agree
Or if their thought can't break free.
If they do that is nice.
If they don't, they're as cold as ice.
Some will begin to yell and scream
But we are all on one team.
This is what I'm trying to say --
In this life we all will pay.
Not in money, but in tears,
`Cause everyone will have fears
For in this life we're all free.
Wonder what the next will be.
The only thing we all will see
Is everyone's thoughts should be free.
Just take these thoughts into mind.
And you will know what to find.
There is life and there is death
So just everyone every breath.
