A couple walks by with a small dog, a young man with a baby,

She mumbles and turns away from me,

“Your whole life goes so fast,

You blink and it’s all past.”

I wish I had some reassuring words but none suffice,

I wish I could free her from grief’s vice.

I know all too well, what lies behind me.

I don’t know what lies ahead, but I pray north stars will guide me.

Angel and honey’ed hummingbird wings,

Forget those things,

You thought you’d bring.

All you can take,

is all you can make,

and you will make it, further than your wildest dreams.

It will be over in a blink,

So make it lovely,

But mostly,

Make it yours.
