Death is calling.

Death is a selfish thing
Which can occur in a blink,
And even when you're prepared for it,
It can arrive sooner than you think.

Death does not care if you're ready,
Or even if you want to go,
It doesn't give a 2nd Thought,
To the ones we love and know.

It can come along in silence,
Then swipe you in a flash,
It can be quick and painless,
Or it could be a long and painful pass.

Death doesn't always warn us it is coming,
Then even when it does,
Knowing you're time here on the earth is limited,
How can you be prepared to leave the 1s you love?

Saying goodbye is never easy,
Having to let go is harder still,
To lose someone who means the world to you,
Puts your heart through the mill.

Life is over so quickly,
Live every day as your last,
Make tomorrow your inspiration,
For today will soon be the past.

Vicki Wroe, 23.
