Suddenly, once again you saw . . .
life, love and its blips
are dropping off the radar screen,
and staring you in the face.
Is the lonely, empty lighthouse
repeatedly searching for solace,
Or is it bravely standing alone
to protect us from the pain?
Being a logical person, it seemed strange,
yet having no fear of the unknown,
I had such faith in the illogical idea,
that everything would come out all right.
Don’t be afraid of death – a voice said,
Be afraid of the un-lived life.
Savor and enjoy each moment of being –
no matter what you are doing.
