Sometimes It Takes A Tragedy

Sometimes it takes a tragedy
to help us see things clear,
and then we get a glimpse of life
without our loved ones here.

The busy days of real-life
go by with such a flash
and then you're in the hospital...
the whole world seems to crash.

We've dodged another bullet.

What a moving poem Mary - so well crafted. It gets a 10 but if there was a 11 or a twelve out of 10 you get that too. Thanks for sharing Uday Balakrishnan

Next time I'm about to let difficulties with a loved one get out of hand I'll remember the sentiment driving this beautifully tailored and emotive poem. Thank you.
