A Song About Life Poem by Walterrean Salley

A Song About Life

Rating: 5.0


Life is all the simple things
That we do and say.
And the much bigger things
That come into play.

Life is joy and sorrow
As we go along.
The smile and the tear.
The happy and sad song.

Life is the young child
And the aged one.
Life is all the days.
And when the days are done.

Life is the great mountains.
And the sandy shores.
And life is the wildflowers
That one so adores.

Life is the ole owl—
As wise as it could be.
For life is everything
That pertains to you and me.
