Sorrow and love

Sorrow and love flow mingled down
  it does not stop because we know
Sorrow and love mingle often to
  bring us to this foot
The shadow of this cross, the soul
  sick worry of a mother, child
Friend put there in fear and love
  cause we walk this way
In this's life more than once
  in denial it can happen to us
No one can die young, no one can
  die old and it all disappears
Into this hard wood of life bringing
  us to the reality we all die
We all deny, we all run and hide
  scared it is the final word
So we have to stand and face
  this death again to know
Death itself, to grieve, to wrap ourselves
  in its shadow of compassion
