Light that burn bright never burns long

The greatest of all human lives

Can shine so very bright

As if they are of star light filigree

Radiating irredescently

The most beautiful of all things

Its hard to know or understand

From where comes their genius

The knowledge and unquestionable gift

We marvel at all of this.

Why is it that these lights that burn so bright

Seldom burn as bright so long

And disappear forever more

Such losses to humanity

We can only hope will be restored

But we still grieve the loss so sore

It leaves an ever open door

To sorrow deep within our hearts

That will never be healed.
