The Girl Who Had the World at Her Palms

Just shy of eighteen, A girl with glistening eyes of dark chestnuts Complimenting deep umber hair. Observes life as it passes by minutes. The classmate who is genuinely funny. Her laugh echoes, Etching its sound into minds of anyone who listens A girl who lights up a room, remembered with halos. Memories with friends and family now irreplaceable Filled with laughter and love. Living in the moment thinking “that could never happen to us” Social media posts suddenly ending in a broken heart and dove. A girl who had ambitions and a bright future, Dreaming of her kids’ gender and names. Twin boys, Jayden and Jordan Growing up, playing with flames. A normal sleepover with friends On a cold January evening. Filled with nothing but happiness Unknowing of the events to take place the next morning Guilt finding those who were there. Wondering if something could have been done Before the girl who had the world at her palms got in her car. But they were asleep and would wake up stunned. For the one who had an impact on many Would no longer be here in the physical. Her memory stays strong in those who loved her But a girl at a young age losing her life is unethical. The life of the party Except the party ended too soon. The courteous, caring girl Now somewhere near the moon. The One Who Touched My Heart Poetry Contest Sponsor: Regina McIntosh

THANKS for sharing this. It is my prayer that you will have a vibrant relationship with the very best Friend we can have --- God Who offers His gift of eternal life, according to John 3:16 of the Bible, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Welcome to PS. God bless you.

I lost one of my earliest friends in a car accident. It's been a few months but she was a genuine person. She is my muse and I wouldn't be here without her.
