Silent Thoughts


I never thought about my own mortality until I had my daughter.  As I watch her grow, I realize my death is near.  I will only share this world with her for a short time.  Our hugs, laughs, and special moments will come to an end.  So many beautiful moments, in her life, I will miss.  This saddens and scares me to know that I will no longer have these moments with her.  It is not death that I fear.  It is the not being able to see, hold, and touch her.
