So Lucky - Poem by Lyn Paul

I feel so Lucky...

For so many things
Have not be so good
But I am blessed
To feel so Lucky

Windows have opened
Then suddenly slammed shut
But blessed I am
For being so Lucky

Teardrops have fallen
On the roadside
I've come out standing
I've come out alive
For that I am so Lucky

The bodies mechanics
May be failing
Though heavy tuning
That I do
To wake each day for that sunrise
Sure makes me feel
So Lucky

Rain may fall
We see victims of sadness
We must see
To be forever grateful
Just to be alive
Healthy and free
Spared to be So Lucky

I've polished many coffins
Smiled and said goodbye
Walked gracefully with the music
Proud to be So Lucky
So Lucky
To be alive

    i reading it; keep your pants on!

    The bodies mechanics
    May be failing
    Though heavy tuning .................maybe body's? and what is heavy tuning? could it be 'turning'. ? ?

    life is ok for me, but i hope death is even better! does Hell have Internet? ? ?

    you seem to have pleased readers, and i am NOT displeased! i am glad you are/feel Lucky. i hope
    you always feel that way, even in death. or don't you plan to die? i can just picture you inside the flowery coffin, thinking: Did i turn off the light in the bathroom? and then thinking: Lucky me, again. i am NOT the one who will have to pay the next electric bill.

    let me know if bodies is a typo and if you want it changed by me before i put this into August's showcase. well, i'll put it in and it can be edited later; it is up to you. not a big deal; i understood the poem i believe.

    When we are confronted by adversities, think of the umpteen blessings we have each day! We are alive to see another morn! We are healthy and not disabled! Though windows were open, they got slammed shut! But again they will open for us! Though tears were shed, smile will again alight on our lips! This is the right spirit Lyn! Nothing should let us get discouraged! Great write and highly inspirational! (Report) Reply
