To be touched by love is the grandest gift of them all.
An enormous feeling that fills the heart.
Emotions are good and bad.
All are important to the shaping of life.
There comes a time when there’s a feeling.
Equally blessed and cursed.
An Angel’s soul within the spirit of a young persons eyes.
Kindness of friendship to be shared with all.
Giving hearts and receiving graciousness
Displayed for us to learn from.
Only these souls posses the world for shorter periods of time.
Their destiny fulfilled in the blink of an eye.
A gift they gave to those they touched.
A lesson taught whether it’s realized or not.
In this an angry question posed
Why so young, so wrong?
Faith tested and pushed to extremes.
Reasoning seems lost on those left behind.
There seems to be no justification
For those who die in unexpected ways.
But it does remind us to live life day to day.
Say you love someone when you do.
Say you’re sorry before you can’t.
Hold your child’s hand and look into their eyes.
Absorb the innocence, laughter and even the pain.
Don’t rush the moments that you can’t get back.
Feeling is living,
Laughter is growth
and tears purge the soul.
Touched by love, left with memories.
