I Love Life

I love life - Iím glad to be alive
Itís love I breathe; on poetry I survive
A feathered quillís the only tool I use
My only need, the kindness of a muse

I gaze at life through an aesthetic eye
And drink in milky splendors of the sky
I dine on gourmet treasures of the field
And reap the loveliness the wildflowers yield

The sunlight is the warmth upon my skin
The moonlight is the warmth of love within
Iíve had a chance to laugh throughout the years
Memories of your love dwell in my tears

There is a cornucopia filled with love
And mornings filled with coos of turtle dove
If I should die,  my love will still survive
I love life - Iím glad to be alive

Elizabeth Santos

Liz--The treasure that you hold fills up the lonely pool that lies within, with love and strength and eyes that see the good and pens the truth...so what you are is lovely to behold.  Wonderful poem!

Oh, what a jewel!  Having been through a difficult day, my first thought was cynical; but then I thought - what a wonderful outlook she has!  So I peeked in.

Little did I know how wonderful!  This is a spectacular poem!  There is so much beauty and appreciation in your work.  I think your spirit must be steeped in God's love.

A good friend of mine told me today that you were one of her favourites here at passions, it's not hard to see why.

I would like to thank you all so very much for your wonderful responses to this poem. I would like to comment individually, but my bones are weary and I must get to bed. But each of you has said something here to warm my heart
Thanks
Liz
