A Snowflake Falls

©

Published: February 2006

One night I saw a snowflake fall.
Past memories it did recall.

And as the snow fell to the ground,
So quietly without a sound,

I watched until a blanket made,
To glistening white - brown earth did fade.

An untouched cover until the dawn.
The sun arose; it was soon gone.

I thought of friendships in the past.
Seemed perfect though they did not last.

And family ties once meant so much,
Now rarely do we keep in touch.

So quickly life can take a turn,
Yet slowly we do seem to learn.

So many things in life can change
And suddenly be rearranged.

In our slumber while we do sleep,
For granted blessings thought to keep,

For same as night does turn to morn,
An untouched blanket can get torn,

The things that we have overlooked,
Ignored, rejected or mistook,

As melted snow does turn to slush,
Relationships can turn to dust.

So this year for the holiday,
Praise God for blessings given today.

Don't take for granted they'll remain,
That life forever will be the same.

Let's be the most that we can be,
For all our friends and family.

Unlike the snowflake on the ground,
Let's keep in touch and stay around.

Superb, poetry as its best.

We should count our blessings one by one,
Every night and day, lest they be gone.
Friends and family, hold onto them tight,
For they may disappear in a trice,
Melting away, same as snowflakes do.
Pray they'll always be around for you.

This poem touched me because not all people have family or is having a rough time with family but family is forever and family always comes first. This poem has really touched me and even though I'm young I still have the ability to understand what life is really about. So thank god everyday for what he has provided to us, our family, our friends, our pets, anything that's important to you.
