In An Instant

In an instant my lights went out
as I drove through the light shown green;
Somewhere from the red light side
sped a truck that was unseen.

In an instant my lights went out
with no chance to say goodbye;
I never told my kids I am proud of them
nor listed the reasons why.

In an instant my lights went out,
never again to be turned on;
Make sure you share the pride you feel
before your chance has gone.

    This is very good and I agree with you. Sometimes we think that we have all the time in the world, but we really don't know. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla
