Granting of Life 2017-27

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
