	WE TOO SHALL FALL

	by Knarik O. Meneshian


	Days shall come 
	and days shall go
	and like a leaf
	upon a tree
	we too shall fall
	and mingle
	with the soil.

	It seems
	that such thoughts occur
	more than once
	when Life takes on
	more shape and form,
	but like a storm
	it does pass
	until again we see
	another leaf
	fall from a tree.

	Once more, we wonder,
	What is Life?
	Just then,
	memories of long ago
	whirl by--
	"...it seems like only yesterday when we..."

	And then,
	looking at our children,
	we realize that someday
	they too shall say--
	"...it seems like only yesterday when we..."

	And so,
	days shall come 
	and days shall go
	and like a leaf
	upon a tree
	we too shall fall
	and mingle 
	with the soil.
