Words That Are Too Real

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a, bed of roses
Sink me in the river, at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I've had, just enough time

This song has always creeped me out but recently, it has developed a new meaning for me.  Long time friends of my family lost their beautiful 25 year old daughter this week.  It is more than devastating.  I went back and forth on whether to blog about this but I said from the start, this was an honest blog about life, and right now, life took a major turn.  My heart breaks for their family and the loss that they feel.  I have cried numerous times for a mother losing her child.  You ask the question "why?", knowing you are never going to get an answer.  Death brings to light just how fragile we all are.

I did not write this to bring you all down, but to remind you that every moment with family and friends should be remembered.  Call your best friends.  Smile at your children.  Kiss your husband.  Tell your parents and siblings you love them.  No matter how many times we all hear this, we always seem to forget.  Unfortunately I have been reminded.

God Bless You MLS
