Living...
Have you ever woken up
and suddenly realized
that you're well into your life,
and you don't even know
where you’ve been
much less where you are going?
And you’re amazed that
so much of your life
was devoted to getting lost.

Loving...
Have you loved ferociously
and whole-heartedly,
but in a liberating fashion?
Has love brought you satisfaction,
on at least some fronts,
or are you now love-shy and daunted?
Do lessons that we learn in life
determine whether we shine brightly
or flicker intermittently?

Losing...
Have you lost someone
that you once felt you could
never bear to lose,
only to find that the loss
made you stronger?
Have you faced life alone
long enough to know
what and who you actually are
or are you still undiscovered?

Dejavu...
Have you ever been in a situation
that seems so familiar
that you’d swear you’ve already
been there and done that?
Does the sense of familiarity
send shivers down your spine
or do you welcome it
like an old friend
that you knew you’d someday find?

This is a very thought-provoking poem...I had to think twice about which way I look at things. Great poem!!

Love and hugs,
Lizzie

Nice poem Jana.  Yes I lost someone that I thought I couldn't live without...and I didn't want to live without them...but I was able to overcome those overwhelming feelings and I am fine now.    James

Jana

It is obvious that you spent a great deal of time composing your thoughts - they are so well laid out - nice composition, too.
