Life Is Here - Death Will Come


   Pick the roses of life - before they wither and dies
   Enjoy life now - every second has its beauty
   Let yourself be grasped by the sun's sweetest wine
   You're like a little seed planted here on earth
   The seeds are planted to grow - grow in full bloom
   we are removing weeds away
   Plant new seeds - they are the sum of your life
   What color are your flowers - does not matter
   You do not need wealth nor diamonds
   Start each day with a smile and rush all the possibilities in life
   Live your life in happiness - taste it - smell it and feel it
   Today is life - do not wait for tomorrow
   We do not decide how far life is
   but we decide how our life should be used
   The day you were born heaven lent you a soul
   When your days are over, the earth will lend you a grave

    This really makes one appreciate every breathe as gift. When it come comes down to to wire if you are rich or poor we all hope and beg we make it through night. No one is guaranteed life tomorrow.

    Life is real! Life is earnest! And the grave is not its goal; Dust thou art, to dust returnest, Was not spoken of the soul. -- H.W.Longfellow

    Though the days between heaven loaning us that soul and the earth loaning us that grave might sometimes appear to be never ending. They are over before we know it , So I hope you enjoy every moment you are in heavens debt. Superb poem, Thank you.

    this is very nice, Anne Lise. Is it for that one contest of Deb's? I notice it talks about growing (blooming) comparing people to seeds! The last line is so sweet.

    Absolutely wonderful! This has got to be one of the best free verse poems I read. One small suggestion: I think in line 1, it should be wither and die. Still, this was great!

    Wonderfully wise words. Life is precious and beautiful, and we miss so many priceless moments that could have meant so much.

    Anne-Lise- First, thank you for commenting on my poem "Branches" and second, I loved this poem of yours. I also love the spring, can't wait for the colors and the lushness of green to come back. Your poem speaks of renewal and living each day as if we are born daily, or born every second. If we live our lives with that openness, if we can open our five senses up to what is really around us (and not just our own interior dialogues), then I feel we really live. Thank you, barbara
