In life there is many an up and a down
And too hard a climb for most to wealth and renown
And since we are born as mortals why otherwise pretend
Our journey in life has to come to an end
Is there life for the soul when the body does die?
If i told you i knew i would be telling you a lie
Many claim that good souls post bodily death do have wings to fly
To a Paradise known as Heaven somewhere beyond the sky
And though to their theological opinions respect one has to pay
Of a life for the soul post bodily death is not for me to say
Yet Nature is the only immortal of which i do know
In Spring after the chill of Winter the grass again does grow
She will be living when the breath of life from me has long gone
For she has been forever and forever will live on.
