Suddenly Gone - Poem by Billy Loving

From the bar, they go
Through the blowing snow
Topping the knoll
Abruptly losing control

Traction lost, swerving to the right
Unable to correct, much to their fright
Careening over the hill
Fighting with all his will

Slamming into a tree
Stopping, so suddenly
Shattering glass, airbag's blast
Going to fast, he's breathed his last
Flying through the air
No seatbelt did he wear
Motionless, lying on the ground
Darkening snow all around

Encased in the twisted metal, slumped in her seat
Body broken, life complete
Journey over, end of the trail
Too soon it's gone, this life so frail
