Blink of An Eye

A short while ago, a family friend passed away from what doctors believe was a heart attack. It was quite the shock, and as we are still coping with the loss of a loved one, I wrote something in his honor, which I hope you all will enjoy.

Life can cease in the blink of an eye,
Just a few breaths too little, and then you die.
Feelings are empty, emotions are lost; the world is scary and cold.
Everything is gone but my love for you, I will always hold.

We often lose track of the beauties close at hand,
That once our life has ended, it will all just be bland.
One blink only, and your whole world can change,
It will never be the same, for it will all feel so strange.

Your world is not over, it is nowhere near done,
There is so much ahead; life has barely begun.
Do not fret though, for an angel is always near,
Your loved one is forever wathcing over; this, I promise you dear.
