Life in a day

downs and ups - in life there is
pain, joy, tears
a tender kiss

it's sailing out on quiet sea
calm and happy
harmony

it's climbing to a mountain top
sweat and feel your heart
non stop

beating - and you sense it strong
you are alive
you do belong

to life and to your loved ones, dear
to the ones
the ones who care

and that is life - in just one day
downs and ups and
oh, you may

turn you face towards the light
choose yourself
day or night

life is what you want to see
sorrow, joy
mystery

grab it
live it
make it your own

it's for you to do
so
please
go on



...calm sea.....

..windy mountain tops....

  12. Dearest Eli,
    And above all, life is meant to enjoy and find as much joy as you can.
    An important factor is finding those that love you and long for keeping you 'up', high in spirits.
    Wishing you all the best and may your soul get carried by many that are dear to you.
    Hugs,
    Mariette
