A long life was lived, adventures, events

Births, marriages, failures, triumphs

Family and professional.

The Life Test slipped by 

You never took it.

The Test of Loss, Death in the face,

Holding it in your arms watching Life turn lifeless

Succour a survivor at the moment breath left.


Missed the Rites of passage

To test Humanhood?

Be not proud.
