Someone died
Someone lost a job
Someone had a wreck
Or popped two tires
Someone found out they have cancer
Or learned they are pregnant
Heard a heartbeat
Held their baby for the first time
Today someone had surgery
Today someone buried a loved one
Today was their day
And today is yours
A nurse wrote four numbers: the time of death
And we ate ice cream
Make it count.
Make every moment
A conscious moment
At the intersection
Of night and of day.
