A Short Poem for A Too-Short Life

My husband lost a friend this week.  He was young, in his late twenties. 

A senseless accident cut short a beautiful life.

A 51-year old father from our community passed away this week as well.

So often when we are touched by these tragedies, we stop to think about how fragile life is.  How important it is to appreciate every single moment.

This Fragile Life

we are strong
yet not

we are but a moment
delicate and fierce

hold onto love

savour every second

for scarcely a moment will pass

in the silver white midnight
we shall look back

and love
