Did you ever think as another year goes by
That you may be the next to die?
Did you ever think that, as you cheer
This may be your final year?
How will you go?
We do not know
Peaceful in sleep
Or painful and slow?
Will age get you? Sickness?
Murderer? Friends? Accidents or bad business?
You should stop and think among the confusion
What should truly be this years New resolutions?
Will we celebrate a New Years again?
Or will Death come and finally be at hand?
Heed! Be thankful as the years go by...
Indeed! You may be the next to die.
