My poem is about life, how it can be taken away so easily. Live it right and dont fear death, be ready for it. Give grace to God for life is tender and a blessing.

The morning bird who sings a song 

Fellow birds who whistle along

Begin a day with a subtle sound

That awakens life for those around

Whose days begin with a simple breath

For during the night they escaped death

Who awake and face another day

Whose chance could have easily been taken away

See, fragility is judged by the ease of a break

Life's fragility is judged by the ease of its take

It can be taken away with the ease of a breeze

And shall do so whenever that it may please

So, while you hold life's tenderness within your grasp

With all of your being hold it with your tightest clasp

Life live fully with every beat of your heart

Every morning is a blessed new start

Give glory to God for every day that begins

For the bird's beautiful song may not be heard again.
