Gift of Life

The weekend has come a-knocking. Hope y’all will have time for de-stressing and relaxing. Here’s a poem I just wrote whimsically, all the while smiling. Hope it brightens up your day, wherever you may be. 🙂

Gift of Life

The here and the now; gifts of life they are
Nothing else comes close; nothing else on par

A human creation, elaborate is time
Endless ticking, no reason or rhyme

But life, a precious gift beyond compare
Among the stars in the universe rare

Like the jewels in the heavens, our gift
Although its passing is delicate, swift

Our dear gift to use; each and every one
Infinite possibilities; a tonne

Don’t be timid; go and stretch your limits
Chart your future, far as the stars permit

Every father, mother, sister, brother
Dream big; let’s find solutions together

Let’s take a moment to remember all the little gifts that we are grateful for, like the sun shining in the sky, the rain quenching our lands of their thirst, our thoughtful and loving family, our understanding and considerate friends, and a healthy body and agile mind… 🙂
