To Life I Belong

by Michael


I love to watch the leaves stirring
And the clouds as they race along
To close my eyes against the sun
And know that to life I belong

I love the many scents I smell
Grasshoppers jumping as I stroll
The heat lightning against the night
And all the things that keep us whole

The breath on lips before a kiss
Then eyes that close to savor it
Such things in life are happiness
Rekindled hope that once was lit

There's so much pleasure that I see
Such loveliness is all around
From stars in their eternity
To simple things upon the ground

Such hope, such peace, such beauty bold
The likes of these are part of me
And yet much more my heart can hold
The depth of which you cannot see

Life has the fairest face of all
So warm she is in my embrace
Each day I wake I hear her call
Her dress pale blue and trimmed in lace

At least that's how I think of her
That life's so sweet, her lips I'll kiss
And cherish all she's given me
A peaceful soul that's filled with bliss

I look around and fall in love
Such hope there is in all I see
To breathe the air, to taste the rain
So soothing I find it to be

all in all.. a most beautiful write

Michael~
I enjoy the way you capture the small nuances of life~

'The breath on lips before a kiss
Then eyes that close to savor it
Such things in life are happiness
Rekindled hope that once was lit'


Very succinctly done.

It sounds to me that life has been just good to you by sharing with you her many blessings, as you have respected her, and she knows it!  After all...Nature is a woman! Oh, I loved this!

Michael--I love the way you have personified life,

"Life has the fairest face of all
So warm she is in my embrace
Each day I wake I hear her call
Her dress pale blue and trimmed in lace"

Wonderful writing, my friend!!

Everyone,

Thank you so much for your warm and generous replies to this piece.  You're all very kind.  I often enjoy looking at the simple things in life.  The ones that when put together make up the whole picture.  And yes, my friends, she has the fairest face of all.  Wouldn't you agree?    Thank you again.

Michael
