Live this Life
We linger but for awhile
But Oh! How lovely the lingering can be
When we allow it to be
When we are freed from fearfully grasping
hanging on too long to moments past
clutching tightly to the present
weighed down with angsty wringing of hands
with shoulds and could haves and would haves...
Yes, allow even frivolity
We linger for such a short while
then we flutter
Live so that in the falling
there is no longing
no looking back...
only a knowing
that Life was Lived...
Live so that when you fall
your fall is not tragic
but a tantalizing display
a dignified denoument
a fearless fluttering
a beautiful fall
"I came that they might have Life, that they might have abundant Life"
