What is the meaning of life?

What is the meaning of life?
Why must Life have a meaning?

It's wakening to a morning sun,
rising from the east,
birds perched on trees singing melodies,
translucent skies softening the sun rays,
green blades of grass caressing underfoot,
babies crying in their cribs,
wives morning kiss,
mothers delicious cooking.
Not enough? ? ?

O' if it needs a meaning
let it be one to remember,
one that will open the heaves
shinning peace and equality on all,
let it be a happy face on children's
playing safe on the streets of Earth,
Let it not be a meaning of suffering,
a plague nor disease.
make it easy for all to understand
as drinking water or dancing in the rain.

I really have no idea it's meaning
just glad I have this gift,
to see and feel,
cry and sleep,
love and know,
I once existed amidst millions of breaths.

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
