Someone, Somewhere


Somewhere far away

Someone is crying

Or laughing

Or sleeping




Has just closed their eyes

For the very last time


A person just cracked their phone

Or saved their child from an oncoming car

Or didn't

Not in time


It's very easy to feel lost

A single heartbeat

Among millions

Stopping and starting as seconds pass


Someone has just died

While giving birth

A life making way for another

The cry of a newborn replacing that of a parent


But here you are

And here I am

You, reading

Me, writing




Did something that will never affect you

Or might


This moment is yours

And yours alone

Cherish it

The clock will never stop

    Thanks for sharing "P & P" ~ a very reflective and prospective poem ! We are all interconnected (and always have been) in a "World Wide Web" (visible and invisible) of human interaction 7.5 billion of us ! As you say "You're writing and I'm reading (hundreds of miles apart) but more than that ~ I am also COMMENTING and saying "how much I enjoyed your poem" and you might respond back ~ also read my Poem (on SNOW) it's a chain reaction and in this way we reach hundreds of people every day. "No Man or Lady is ever an Island" especially in the CYBER AGE ~ Yours BRIAN (UK)
