A Split-Second

watch with second hand

In a split-second misfortune came
As she went from consciousness to unable to speak her name
I witnessed it, the freak accident
It’s something one hears about in news or on tv
But rarely if ever see
In a split second you can be at strangers and God’s mercy

As we waited for medics to arrive
The accident reminded me
To double down in thanking God for safety
When you leave home, you don’t know
What dangers or events may unfold

So, whether it’s just a simple walk to someplace
If I return home safe
I’m saying thank You Lord
Can’t never thank or praise God too much
Or let our thanks become mundane
Cause in a split-second life can change.
