Life is too fragile!

You don’t realize how fragile life is
until you hear it’s a deadly disease for someone beloved and your heart skips a beat!

You don’t realize how fragile life is
until you’re at doctor’s appointment hoping
the tests are coming back alright!

You don’t realize how fragile life is
until you find yourself praying to
God for miracles to happen!

You don’t realize how fragile life is
until they say “There’s nothing
more we can do to save them!”

You don’t realize how fragile life is
until you attend a funeral and finally understand that life is a rollercoaster!

You don’t realize how fragile life is
until you know that they’re never
coming back how bad you want them!

You don’t realize how fragile life is
until you understand that tomorrow
is unpredictable and not guaranteed!

So please learn to cherish each moment
that you are given because life is too fragile!

    1. You are absolutely right! When good things happen around we feel life is worth living! ❤️❤️
      This poem was written when I felt really low seeing my best friend’s mom passed away after trying very hard to save her. 💔💔 Sometimes life is too fragile. 🖤

  2. Indeed. It behoves us to live fully in each moment we are blessed with. But sadly we take it for granted that we’ll live to see the next moment. Good advice. Thanks for sharing

    1. Thank you dear Cindy, Am all good, but this poem was inspired by someone who lost her life recently though my friend put all her efforts to save her mom. But alas, she didn’t survive after all our efforts. Seeing that is so hard and painful. I learnt we just can’t take today for granted! Our dear Astha is indeed a loss to us. Let’s know the value of time because it doesn’t stay same everyday❤️❤️. Have a lovely weekend dear Cindy.

      1. Hi Preeths… you’re so welcome and my condolences to your friend., It must have been hard to witness this and so sad her loving efforts didn’t pay off. Ugh.. soooo sad indeed. Yes, this is so true we never know the loss we will feel when those we have loved is gone and we don’t get to share our world with them anymore. She sure is and I’m grateful we can keep her alive through her words and all of our exchanges. Have a lovely weekend dear friend and thanks for the wishes… I will too!💖💖
