Oh I am young but I have a past
Travelled far to find the start
Yes I am scared and I’ve been burnt
But life is short
– “Life Is Short” – Butterfly Boucher
I have been reminded how short life can be today. One of the people from the department I’m working closely with, passed on in the wee hours of the morning. I heard he was riding back from supper and met with a motorcycle accident. I also heard he just got married last year and he and his wife are newly expecting. Sigh.
Though I was not close with him, I did interact with him during the course of work. I did not know much about him on a personal level, but this piece of news justs shocks me. I just saw him yesterday for God’s sake. And today…he is gone.
It’s hard to believe, I guess, because it was so unexpected. So sudden.
It all just goes to show that life is short.
You never know when your time is up…
