The words to this song make me think of what my ex has been through. No, he didn't die literally, but he lost so much of his younger years. It's also good to think about because the words remind me to live every day to the fullest. It's a beautiful song if you get a chance to listen to it:

"If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
oh oh oh oh

Lord make me a rainbow, Iíll shine down on my mother
She'll know Iím safe with you when she stands under my colors, oh and
Life ain't always what you think it ought to be, no
ain't even gray, but she buries her baby

The sharp knife of a short life, well
Iíve had just enough time

If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

The sharp knife of a short life, well
Iíve had just enough time

And Iíll be wearing white when I come into your kingdom
Iím as green as the ring on my little cold finger
Iíve never known the lovin' of a man
But it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand
Thereís a boy here in town says heíll love me forever
Who would have thought forever could be severed by

The sharp knife of a short life, well
Iíve had just enough time

So put on your best boys and Iíll wear my pearls
What I never did is done

A penny for my thoughts, oh no Iíll sell them for a dollar
They're worth so much more after Iím a goner
And maybe then youíll hear the words I been singiní
Funny when you're dead how people start listeniní

If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
oh oh


The ballad of a dove
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears, keep Ďem in your pocket
Save them for a time when your really gonna need 'em oh

The sharp knife of a short life, well
Iíve had just enough time

So put on your best boys and Iíll wear my pearls"
-"If I Die Young" by The Band Perry

Forgot to say, I do love the thought that even though he lost so much, he has the chance to live fully starting TODAY. That gives me hope.
