Sorry to hear about the sickness that came down on your loved one. Hope the he or she will get through it, by medical help, or Divine Power. Life is indeed strange, but we've to endure what it throws at us. God is good. With him, all things are possible! We have the oopportunity to look to him in the darkest hours of our lives. He'll deliver us and let his Will be done.
I enjoyed the poem. It depicts the stages of one's life, and asked the question of why one should always take good care of his days on Planet Earth. No two ways about it.
