“I was distracted
And in traffic
I didn’t feel it
When the earthquake happened
But it really got me thinkin”
I was panicked and had to make sure you were okay, I tried calling you but it sent me to voicemail right away.
I didn’t know what to do so I grab my keys, hopped in the car and started driving your way.
I arrived at the house and rang the bell on your porch, No one answered, I hated this day even more.
I went around to back, just to find you on the floor, with no way in, I used a rock to break the glass door.
I laid you in my car with tears in my eyes, there’s blood on your shirt, If I don’t go now you could die.
I rushed to the hospital and ran you inside, I yelled “we need help, this woman will die.”
The doctor rushed in and laid two finger on her neck, for a sign of life was to be checked.
The doctor looked up at me and I could see doubt in his face, He said to me “Sorry sir but it’s too late”
“I woke up in tears, with you by my side
A breath of relief, and I realized
No, we’re not promised tomorrow”
