In a Matter of a Second

Life can change in a matter of a second-

Isn’t that memorizing?

Time flies when you’re glad

But remains stagnant when you’re sad

One day can be the best

And then tragedy can strike the next

That tiny toddler, not yet literate, running around

is now grown-up going off on their own.

Cherish all the little moments in life

Both good and bad-

Because you must remember,

that life won’t stay the same forever.
