A Life Well Lived

Some consider a life well lived What they have acquired and own Wealthy, riches and objects to show Living in a huge home My belief on a life well lived Has a very different view Though it may sound simple I believe it to be true ….. I feel at the end of your life If you have time for reflection What will really matter to you Will be simply true love and affection Have you loved and been loved Been part of a happy family Known the feeling of unconditional love And given it unconditionally Has your life been lived to its fullest Making the best of the hand you were given Will you leave this earth with few or no regrets Having enjoyed the life you were living! Is A Life Well Lived …..

Deb, I read this poem and I had just received a write from my brother that was very good, They say much the same thing. I really like both. Thanks for a good write.

Very accurate; if you are loved and show love to others, what more can you expect from life.

That’s all that matters when you’re on your deathbed not what you own. Thanks lovely Shirley. Debx

A child born into loving arms has a good chance of living a life that’s charmed, nothing to do with riches or wealth, just being loved, loving back and enjoying oneself. A lovely poem Deb… Belle

I like your definition of life well lived, Deb. Something we should all strive for but perhaps fall short. You have an endless reservoir of gems like this. Words of wisdom!
