Living Life - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

i let things
come as they are
like the rain
that falls
and the river
that brings the
water out to sea

i take life
like how love flows
negotiates
its way over
every of the
piano keys
to make it to
your heart

i take life
like how
your deft
fingers go
never question
how each dribbles
over the keys
to bring out the
sweet notes of our life

i let troubles
come and go
like the rain fall
and the river that brings
the water out to sea
