I closed my eyes,
It's any easy thing to do,
And opened them to bright colors,

I took a step forward,
Not thinking about the effort it took,
Because there was no effort at all,

I took a breath,
Something I do each moment,
Without even pausing to think,

My heart beat uncountable times,
And I don't even have to concentrate to make that miracle happen,
To be alive…

And now,
I'm watching her wither away,
Slowly saying good bye to all those little things,
I turn so she can't see my tears

How could I ever take this for granted?
