When Comfort Flees

When Comfort Flees

A Poem by Mirror


What is more important in life
Than the breathe of oxygen
Every day, every second?
I drove passed by and saw 
Crashed car and four bodies
One toddler with her teddy
Life taken too soon
And I watched the wails
The pains, groans
And comfort seems to be 
A luxury that has fled
