Sudden death – a poem

Resonated within me…

Robbie's inspiration

IMG_0222Each and every day,

You hear of pain;

It’s a part of life,

Like sun and rain.


A young father shot,

A life suddenly ends;

Wife and children left,

For themselves to fend.


A drug addicts child,

Always left alone;

Of starvation dies,

He’s skin and bone.


An aircraft crash,

Kills all on board;

Each link with life,

A severed cord.


At first a death,

Is so surreal;

It’s permanency,

Is so unreal.


The first few days,

They go so fast;

The funeral,

In a flash it’s past.


Harsh reality,

When people leave;

And left alone,

Your loss you grieve.


Life is fragile,

Not guaranteed;

Make sure each day,

Is gladly received.
