Like a dropp of rain in the wind,
Like a fish in the ocean,
Like a spark in the darkness,
A clock ticks without motion.
Like a diamond in mountains,
Like a tree in the forest,
Like a cloud in the sky,
The choir sings without chorus.
Like a shard of glass from a window,
Like a torn page from a book,
Like a burnt home in a field,
A life worth one more look.
Like red candlewax melted,
Like flame turned to ice,
Like pond ripples at midnight,
The devil grins twice.
Like a diamond buried,
Like an hourglass shifted,
Like a mirrors reflection,
A perspective twisted.
Like a star in the universe,
Like a planet in space,
Like a crater on the moon,
Life is a race,
is a race,
is a race.
And some leave too soon.

The spectrum of size was captured well. Life is just temporal here on earth.
dear poet friend, you have a pure soul, through your kind words your friends will live on
sorry for ya man...this is a beautiful poem....describes exactly how short life can be...how sad life can be.... nice work 10++
This poem is a marvel, because it is written in a wide perspective, on a grave subject, and in spite if that, though one senses the tears, especially at the end, there is restrainst and dignity. Kale, these moments are life-changers. I'm glad you are a poet, and that your friends are remembered in this fashion. Maybe add the dates? Great work.
a beautifully written, lovely poem, ode to your late friends. great job :)
This is some lush language. I enjoyed very much too the way it ended.
To me, it says we're individual yet part of a whole, small yet precious and when we lose someone, it shakes us to our core, exposing the fragility of life taken by a cruel twist of fate. Lovely tribute.
a voice with a lot of warmth that is touching, yet it is a tribute to 2 dear friends you have lost.
I have no words after reading the poem what to comment......life on earth never be predicted we dont know causes when results hurt we mourn.......a great write....
