I Am Learning

Life is  fragile

I am learning

To be aware

Even more

Of what I

Can lose

By one look

One word

All that I

Thought can


Into the black skies

I am learning

To appreciate

Even more

Than what I

Did before

The gifts of

Friendshipsea of waterclass reunion

The life I live

For I know

That in a

Blink of an eye

It can all

Be taken away.

  1. Powerful words, and so true!! In the blink of an eye, my wife’s brother died of a massive heart attack on this Thursday… He was only 48. He leaves a dedicated wife, and two kids, 11&8. Hold tight to your loved ones!!!


    • I cling like I am Tarzan on a vine to what ever we have remaining. It sounds sort of silly but I can’t help it. He is all I have left and I don’t want to let go, but I am working real hard at accepting what is going to come
