Life is but a prelude of things to come,
The rolling of a distant drum,
The tuning of the orchestra
In preparation of the full score.
The striving to perfect the false note,
The learning to know when off key,
Trying to live in tempo and harmony,
The rehearsal for the Grande Finale.
Life is music in all its entirety
Death is life in all its eternity
