In Memory of Kristin Kay Smith, 10/1/1986 – 12/29/2000

Everything Ends February 27, 2010

Everything Ends
By Kristin Smith

A river flows steadily to the end
As it joins the ocean

The lion expels his last roar
As the hyenas stand laughing

A pot of gold waits at the end of the rainbow
As the rainbow shines after the last drop of rain

Popcorn is finished
As the end of a movie is reached

Hearts are saddened
As friendships end

Many weep
As a life has ended

A sigh of relief is taken
As a war ends

A poem is completed
As the poet runs out of ideas
