Realize When it Happens

We might want to live lives forever fond.

There are no worrisome days, only dawned

~

reminders of the times we had much fun.

Playing roles, acting strange only just begun

~

our waking hours, we slept without concern

of what the day would bring. Young hearts to yearn

~

for simple beauty’s lovely elegance,

to again be the one ticket to chance.

~

Now we wake into morning wild and worn,

wander slow for the many hearts then torn,

~

have their lives on their sleeves drawn and waiting

in spirit while we create. Deciding

~

how to live our lives today the challenge

carries weighty years of strife, like Stonehenge.

~

A monument of fortitude carries that mystery

much like our adventurous legacy.

~

We can only hope and pray certain solace

to realize when it happens to us!
