As I get older I think about this subject more. I do NOT worry about it, just am aware of what I do and do not do and realize that taking life for granted is not a thing to do. I wrote this when I had a close experience with death and it is still true, just for living!!!
For Granted 2018-42
So much we take for granted,
Existence on this mother Earth.
From the womb to the tomb
In such a whisper of heartbeats
Weighed against the infinity of time
Things we smell, see and feel,
Our senses reel in splendor
To much we take for granted still.
Each day, hour and moment lived
Cherish as it is- in spite
Of turmoil or rewards of bliss.
Things we love to be loved even more,
Too quick in time, the lives become lore.
For granted we take our everyday living,
Instead to be lived to the fullest with giving.
