sixty seconds...

how long
it lasted
for just sixty
it was 10 10 10 10 10
i wonder how many
mommas said
hello little one
how many families said
their final goodbyes
how many lovers
kissed for the first time
i wonder how many life decisions
were made that will
bear that moment in time
how many
memories were captured
for eternity
the good and
the not so good
as i remember those sixty short seconds
i hope to remind myself
that life
can be changed
life can be altered
in that tiny amount of time
