Life of wonder

In this life of wonder, travelled near and far Exploring many destinations by train, plane, boat and car Mixed with feeling, strength and frailty, each unique to me Through these distorted lenses, did all these wonders see Countless perceptions and different views on Earth What one may view as serious, others see with mirth Seen miracles of science and history unfold Alas, in just one lifetime, so much remains untold If I finally did know everything, still would be untrue For those who follow behind me, would have a different view Life is fluid, everchanging, nothing stays the same curiosity rearranging, only memories remain Truly live, experience, each moment in your life For in the end, it was the journey, that made it all so right Cherish every hug and kiss, understand their power For in this big wide world of wonder, memories fill our twilight hours Feel, treasure everything and keep it safely in your soul In this way you'll feel its comfort as the days grow old Live your life of wonder, carry it with pride but remember, twas the little things that made it worth the ride
