There Are Things

There are things 
You see
Or hear
That make you think
About the people you love.
They jolt you awake.
They make you feel alive.
They make you grateful 
For what you have.
They make you cherish
The people around you.
They fill you with love
In the strangest of ways.
Those things are sad
Or painful
Or scary.
They’re the things you hope
Will never happen to you.
But learn from these things
Because nothing is certain.
Love being loved.
Love being alive.
