Life As You - Poem by T. Russell Bostic

Life as a tiny innocent raindrop,
Each falling into an endless ocean of blue. Your life; small, uninterestingly unimportant,
In the sea of endless time. Your life as a single frame from a full-length
Motion picture; hardly noticed, until you are gone. Life as a vast desert;
You as a single grain of sand,
Hoping to shine above the rest. You as a single snowflake in the
heat of a great blizzard;
At first you appear no different from the rest,
But up close you are unique and beautiful. Without you, nothing would be the same.
