A Wondrous Life

Hibiscus - image by Seafarrwide

What a wondrous life it is

To see the sky each day

To breath the air so fresh

To hear the birds tweet

That morning moment

Before all are awake

I ponder life and my fate

Barefeet I walk outside

Toes tingle on soft grass

Wet with morning dew

I have a little laugh

Remembering  long ago

Of carefree childhood ways

The simple things were free

Outside we’d spend our days

We never knew what lay ahead

How weary the adults tread

The pressures and worries

To be so much more

To be the best

To have it all

When one sad day

When we pass away

Some may shed a tear

For a day or a week

 Miss your happy face

Kind words you did speak

But to be that happy face

Who spoke the kind words

You must live your life

As you would prefer

Tingle those toes

Enjoy simple things

Live a life that makes you sing
