In an instant

by joetwo

Within an instant

All was lost

Nine months in the womb

Eighteen years of nurturing

Twelve years of schooling

Lost, wasted in an instant

#

Within mere seconds

It was all gone

So many memories

Years of experience

A unique viewpoint on life

Lost from the world, forever

#

How sacred is it really

That which can be lost so readily?

Unprotected unpreserved  by fate

I think not much

Sacred only in the memory

That faint glimmer of love, caring, in those left behind
