In a Blink

Don’t blink or you will miss it all
life is so soon over
then into the grave we fall.

When I was a child
I could not conceive
of a time when I would
not be here
then recently saw a baby
and realized when she grew up
I’d be gone and felt such fear.

It hit me hard that
life will go on
I might be missed for awhile
but then I’d be gone.

But I’ve grown
to accept
this idea that
life’s not forever
at least not here.

Is there more?
Well, we’ll just have
to wait and see.
