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 whom 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 lap.
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, too earn and cherish
The love of as many
Family members and friends in a lifetime.
Gifts from god are your own choices to make,
Free to wander the earth, too 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.
Well said Keith. Our lives carry along many burdens and worries. It is always a blessing to be able aside all of this added weight.
Thanks for reading.
