Quote it Sat #9: Death

This is a weekly meme in which you can quote from anything really. Favorite books, people, just anything that you like! Anyway this week's quote is about death.

"A brief candle; both ends burning
An endless mile; a bus wheel turning
A friend to share the lonesome times
A handshake and a sip of wine
So say it loud and let it ring
We are all a part of everything
The future, present and the past
Fly on proud bird
You're free at last
." -Charlie Daniels

Well i'm pretty sure a lot of you heard about what happened here in Texas at Fort Hood. My heart goes out to every single family member who's lost a loved one, or has a loved one injured. I choose this quote this week because I thought it would be appropriate in these times of death and loss. What about you guys? What did you quote this Sat? Lemme know in the comment section below.
