Shattered Rose Glass

Inspired by the daily prompt, “suddenly.”

untitled (6)

It wasn’t oh so long ago
And not so very far away
When I realized everyone I loved
Were bound to die someday.

My rose-glass world was shattered:
I never had conceived
That I would ever face the world
Without my family.

My tears then wet my pillow
Until I heard my sister say
“Tomorrow isn’t given,
But you still have today.”
