Life is precious

A gem on the sands of shores.
Though often treated as if it matters little.

Life is the beauty of the world.

As a rose, it blooms in season.

Hides in it the souls of all reasons.

Life is the sun it comes and then goes

Each life adds something new

Good or bad is what we make of it.

Life is worth living.

Sometimes worth dying for-

but never in life you throw away.

Each life must be treasured its very natural end.

Godfrey, thank you for this fine composition, portraying the true essence of life. Very insightful. This is one of my favorite subjects, partially because it‘s such a mystery- though we thing ourselves well acquainted with this such phenomenon. Again thank you. PS: In reference to my poem ‘A Sad Comedian, ’ thanks for your kind comments. I’ve just learned that it was recently featured as Poem of the Day.
