Life is Fragile


A two-year old life could have ended
in a pond in a big back yard,
but, miraculously, her life was saved.
The alternative would have been very hard.

Dave’s keen eyes spotted her pink top
below the surface of the water,
he immediately went into action
yelling for Dan, as it was his daughter.

A tiny hand held tight to Dave’s
as he pulled her body ashore.
He will never forget that feeling –
life grasped away from death’s door.

Twenty adults and thirty children
learned how fragile life can be
and how precious every moment is,
we must live life gratefully.

With an attitude of gratitude
good things do come our way.
I’m so grateful for this happy ending
To a glorious Canada Day.
