Life is a pattern intricately woven seen best from above.
This life is only loaned to us for a short time, given out of love.
One day it will be over, and a splendid pattern will unfold.
Those that are left behind will make sure that our story is told.
The colors will be displayed in the woof and weave and laid out for all to observe.
Our heirs will save this pattern in their hearts so as to preserve.
Some day they will join us, and their life's pattern will show forth their inheritance and our teaching from days gone by.
It is given to all of us, one time to die.
So the pattern of other lives continue in our place,
And that is the legacy of the human race.
