I Have So Much To Live For

Photograph: Sharron R. McMillan

I have so much to live for
my life’s filled to the brim
there is so much to live for
my mind can’t take it in.

Each day brings a new sunrise
I watch it and rejoice
many are the daily joys
of which I have a choice.

I may choose to go out in the sunlight
or stay in and listen to rain
I may romp in the snow as a child
or relive days gone by once again

I may sing with the music of children
playing so freely nearby
or hum to the quiet of rest time
and dream of my love with a sigh.

And finally the sunset
fading of light’s last ray
flowers all folded and nestled for sleep
I had so much to live for today.
