Long Life (Life Is Too Short, But Just Long Enough)

Life is too short to be spent
griping about the past,

counting the wrongs done on you.

Life is just long enough
to enjoy the beauty of a sunrise
the smell of wet earth
and the sound of laughter
after a long day's work.

Life is just long enough
to practice compassion and generosity,
to comfort the grieving,
to lend strength to the fainthearted,

past the dainty white bougainvilleas
lacing themselves above
