In The Midst Of Life

The siren startles me
From my aimless thoughts ~
I watch the ambulance
Jockey for position
At the crowded intersection ~
And I think of the
Anxious hearts awaiting
Its arrival ~ straining
To hear the first notes
Of its wailing cry ~
Counting down the
Life of a loved one
In agonizing seconds ~
Storming heaven with
A mix of threats and
Pitiful entreaty ~
Making deals they would
Have scorned just
Moments prior ~
So much resting on
The swift arrival of this
Vehicle of mercy ~
Will it be in time … ?
