Celebrating a Year

week 255 ~ as life’s length is uncertain for us all

with 6 comments

me.255as life’s length is uncertain for us all
we bleed and cry and laugh and feel the ground
beneath our feet gratefully standing tall
and if we were to fall right now the sound
would echo in a thousand hearts nay more
the ripples of our life extending on
beyond the pile of troubles at our door
beyond the dark of midnight to the dawn
of clearer understanding if not hope
bound by the ties of friendship if not love
uncertain when our reach exceeds our scope
disarmed by acts of kindness heartache of
the abyss thankfully still matters less
than the exquisite joy of humanness

  1. Love the sentiment in the poem…the uncertainty makes the wine sometimes that more sweeter.

  2. There so much truth and emotion in this, a sad and happy thing … We enjoy what we can while we can. Amen!
