A Great Loss

What is the cost, a great loss?

Can it ever be repaid?

We all lose if we choose,

To live life plans laid. 

There are hazards, great and small,

Life puts in our way. 

Challenges so great and mighty,

That we may never see the day,

When everyone will be free from loss,

Be free from strife and pain. 

The answer, is, "No."

So we must go out while tears rain. 

Going about our business, every day,

Smiling, laughing, and joking again.
