Blink Twice

Don't close your eyes
Until you must

Don't blink
You might miss it
You might not see it
And it might never be visible again

Don't blink once
You might not believe it
You might never want to see it
And it might never be possible again

Don't blink twice
You might make a wish on it
You might not get another chance like this
And it may never come this close to us

Again...

Don't blink until you see the lights
Don't blink once or you might forget it
Don't blink twice or you might regret it

Don't blink until you see
Don't close your eyes
Until you must

Voted up and awesome! Made me think of some shooting stars I've let go by because I blinked not to mention some of life's more interesting moments.

You are quickly becoming a new number one fan there GRL. You seem to read my new works as soon as they are available, poetry wise of course. Thank you. Keep on Hubbing. Blake4d

Very Thought Provoking Poem Blake. Life is full of the Times we missed something, just because we were looking at something else...or maybe we just "Blinked" at the wrong time!

Thanx everyone.

No Raciniwa, it was not in my garden, but a friend. They did not even plant it, it was a sunflower that grew all on its own. Keep on Hubbing. Blake4d
