A Fragile Life



As we near home
I’m overcome with sadness
Thinking about how fragile life is

Memories of loved ones
Long since gone
Flood my mind

Time with them will never pass this way again
A chance to say I love you is gone
As soon as death shuts that door

Sickness and pain
Touch each life
Death is a certainty for us all

May I not take you for granted
Each day, tell you I love you
Hold you as if it may be the last time
