One Second

One Second

One second
Not a lot of time
A mere speck in the universe
Enough time to fall in love
Too little time to get to know someone
Enough time to have an idea
Too little time for a second thought
Enough time to say the wrong thing
Too little time to take it back
Enough time for a single heartbeat
Too little time to live your life
Enough time to create a memory
Too little time to remember
Enough time to be born
Too little time become who you are
One second is such a short time
Almost unnoticed as it clicks by
Yet it can be so important
It is enough time to die
Too little time to be mourned
It is just one second
What does it really matter?
