One Single Stupid Second

It’s so funny how 
One moment everything is fine.
The sun is shining
The birds are tweeting
Just another perfect day.

And in one second
-one single second!-
Everything you have worked for
Everything you live for
Crumbles away around you.

You were
Having fun
Laughing
Singing
Playing.

Then- in a stupid second-
Everything changes.

Now you’re in 
Total hysterics
Screaming
Crying
Panicking.

The car came down too fast.
There was no way he could have ever
Seen it coming.

He crossed the street 
Just at the 
Complete wrong time.

Then he’s gone.

Breathed his last breath 
Just a second after
His head smacked the ground.

People were praying.
Others were getting people
Out of the way of the 
Paramedics.

But I knew he was gone.

You can feel it heavy in your heart.
You can feel it twisting your gut.

And part of you just knows
He is never coming back to kiss you goodnight.
