Too Short (Poem)

He sleeps so peacefully,

Amused by his sleeping reactions,

My heart breaks as I watch him sleep peacefully,

I want to capture his adorable reactions,

I get reminded of how short life is as he sleeps peacefully.


Together forever isn’t part of love,

Time is eventually going to separate us,

Death might be a reason that we say goodbye to love,

Reality makes me appreciate us,

Reality reminds me to cherish our love.


So I am grateful when we talk after a disagreement,

Grateful for the healing that appears after our talking,

Grateful to appreciate our love once more when we deal with the disagreement,

I love going back to “I love you” after talking,

After all, as I said, life and love are too short to get stuck on a disagreement.
