Life is beautiful

Life is beautiful short poem

Photo by VinothChandar

I live today in your memoirs
Some courage, an unknown strength,
your words breathe into me
And though you lie cold and dead
You manage to make me emulate
Your treaded path, your valued thoughts
Your life which you led carefree
Each step you took built me up
What I am today, what I reflect
And though there is pain around
I remember those words you said to me
Life can never be the same always
It rises and falls, it prods and stalls
Yet whatever it is – with all its hues
Life is beautiful indeed.

Lovely poem, beautifully expressed. Life is indeed beautiful and precious too, with its ups and downs. Some are like rollercoasters and some a gentle meandering of hills and dales.
