Life

 

Listen carefully
so it does not escape
Listen carefully
for it may be fate
Does it bring joy
or tears to your eyes
Does it make you laugh
or does it make you cry
At times it may be difficult
to understand
But try very hard to see
for it just sits in your hand
No matter where you look
no matter where you turn
It=s what makes you triumph
it=s what makes you learn
For if one day
it falls from your sight
For if one day
you no longer hold it tight
You will truly experience
a cloud in your soul
And you will always wonder
what you thought you used to know
