A FEARFUL WEIGHT
Taken for granted the treasures of life,
Gifts from god bestowed upon the mortal man.
All that he dreams is for our eyes to see,
Health and happiness, love of those who in
Return hope for love.
A fearful weight upon ones shoulders, pain in
The mind, Worries of the day,
A message that sickness may have fallen upon your
So afraid that the weight of it being possible that
Has made it so real inside,
Material belongings are of no real value when it
comes to the thought
That the end may be near, of not another breath.
Treasures of life are the health that you keep,
Happiness created by only you, to earn and cherish
the love as of many
Family members and friends in a lifetime.
Gifts from God are your own choices to make,
Free to wander the earth, to witness all of its
Mystery and beauty.
In a moment we are given life, in a moment we
Leave this world,
Taken for granted things we must over and over learn,
A lesson not forgotten, a lesson well learned.
Great poem! I needed some thankful thoughts of this world, couldn’t have had better timing
Thanks so much, I’m glad it helped you.
