I’ve always known life goes in cycles

I’ve always known life goes in cycles but now I am experiencing this. When you are a chi,d you move from grade school to high school then college/university. Along the way, grandparents die and when someone your own age dies, you say they died too young. Then you start work and friends are getting married, having children. As you get closer to retirement age, it is your parents who are dying and your friends’ parents. When people you know now your own age die, it is sad for their grown kids.

Then you retire and most of your friends’ parents have died and now they are dying and it is expected and people say “well they lived a good life.” The cycle of life.
