Song To Be Sung
#1
Once again our company must part,
but never lose faith, as we'll be stronger of heart. 
There will be new challenges by the many,
just meet them head on hard or any.

What is meant to happen often won't,
We say we'll make changes, we say it but don't.
With so much to offer, comfort and trust,
Our friendship will remain, this is a must!

Let us believe in a word called fate, 
and steer clear of fools so consumed in thier hate.
Live life to the fullest, for we're all still so young, 
and be sure in ourselves that our songs to be sung!

So much in the past, memories that hurt,
try to look forward, dodge, weave, and avert.
We've all heard the phrase "be all that you can",
Let's not be like most just a "flash in the pan!"

Life is a game we've not played all that well,
but like when we're kids, we get up when we fall!
Let's think of our loved ones that are with us no more, 
come to terms with our fears and open new doors.

So we'll live some more life and many more years, 
we owe it to us, our families, our peers.
What ever else happens, just remember one thing,
we will meet again and together we will SING!!!

This is really cute. I like the clear balance between adult and childishness, it gives the poem a timeless feel to it. I did notice you misspelled "their" as "thier," which I assume is a typo, but I wanted to bring it to your attention because it distracted me a bit and you might want to fix it.

I also appreciate the message you present, it's very positive. I could see this being put into a motivational poetry book or on a poster. Keep it up!

Life is a game we've not played all that well,                          The aphorism is reassuring.

come to terms with our fears and open new doors.                    Good advice here.   The poem itself seems to open many doors.

So we'll live some more life and many more years, 
we owe it to us, our families, our peers.
