But Life


I think of when it is all over
No more worries about the bills
Or the health checkups
Or the state of the nation,
But life
Oh how I would miss life
The laughs
The good times
When all I have to do
Is see my son or daughter
And a smile appears.
I think of when it is all over
No more having to make my bed
Or do the dishes
Or worry about what to wear,
But life
Oh how I would miss life
The music
The dancing
The way the moon shines
The sun rises
No matter where you are.
I think of when it is all over
No more brushing my hair
Or sweeping a floor
Or dusting the cobwebs away,
But life
Oh how I would miss life
The relatives
The friends
The beaches
The redwoods.
I think of when it is all over
No more aches or pains
Or fears
Or bad memories
But life
Oh how I would miss life
So I think I will just
Breathe
And live.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
