Lightning Strikes

It’s the track-stopping moment

Of your child’s very first word

It’s a sound, a sight, a piece of time

The most beautiful thing you’ve heard

It’s the breath-taking instance

As she walks into your view

It’s a gasp, a pause, a nervous thought

As she looks right back at you

It’s the load-lifting comments

As the doctor holds your hand

“She’ll be just fine; you can see her soon”

Life will proceed as planned

It’s the awe-inspiring feeling

When you realize who you are

It’s a plan, a goal, your future’s set

Your life’s purpose; your North Star

Like a storm explodes a summer sky

And breaks the heat of summer days

Those moments won’t be lost on you

Lightning strikes in many ways
