Oh, appreciate from where you have come

A remarkable journey of life

There were times you were sure you’d die

And times that you wished you would

Moments when you stood tall

Seconds ticked away

Without notice

You’re still here





For even

More adventures

Grabbing for the ring

Every carousel ride

Staying up to wish on stars

Sharing what you have with others

Wearing your best clothes for no reason

Other than you are celebrating life

  3. Thank you for another wonderful poem, Annette! So motivating and life-affirming. Yes, someone has given us this life, so that we can also live it for ourselves, and we should be happy whatever happens. 🙂 Have a beautiful Friday! Michael xx
