I wrote this poem for my mom a few months ago, mainly because she had to have emergency surgery and nearly didn't make it. This one is for her.

Every few seconds

Someone is born

Someone dies

Every few seconds

Someone’s life is beginning

Coming to an end

Every few seconds

A life is complete

A life is torn

Every few seconds

Someone’s dream comes true

Dreams are crushed

Every few seconds

Someone finds their way

Someone loses all hope

Every few seconds

My heart keeps beating

Steady and strong

Every few seconds

The day goes on

Repeating itself

Every few seconds

I thank God

For second chances
