We Never Realise - Poem by David Harris

We never realise how fragile
life can really be
until it effects someone
within our friends and family tree.
We never look at the dangers
that face our daily lives.
It is only when something happens
we take notice and realise
that we are not as immortal,
as we thought we are.
