Once again I was reminded of the frailty of life.
Of the snatcher
Lurking in the shadows of morning
and breezes of the day
As the night falls
Appearing in unsuspected moments
In the brightest of times
Ready to remove a loved one
in a blink of the eye
Bringing darkness and despair
Grateful I am for the intervening mercies
that the snatcher was averted.
I am ever thankful to God and
reminded that our moments together
are the so cliched gift.
Thankful for a new day to appreciate and
savor the ones I love.
