So EASY to do, taking life for granted!!! We all expect tomorrow to arrive, life to go on, and on and on……. I sometimes sit and contemplate life in general, my life and lives of others I know. It is NOT a given, something that will never end, but is something to appreciate while we have it here on Earth.
Granting of Life 2017-27
Taking life for granted, at times,
is an easy thing to do.
The repetitious existence we live,
a sameness, of happenings –nothing new.
The birds flying by, making noise,
and bees buzzing – creating honey
The grass needs cut again, of course;
girls being annoyed by little boys.
All our senses gather data each day,
sometimes not as good as before,
But with a sensual diminishment,
consider if they were taken away.
Knowing what we are born with
and then learn to improve with time.
The walking, running and everything,
is now a normal expected thing.
If taken away, any will be missed,
when something was always there.
The parting is not fair, and really
should have been more appreciated
