my Life
filled with happiness & with strife
sometimes the Light so bright
that i'd lose sight
sometimes It cut me like a knife
guess that's just been my Life

sometimes fat, sometimes thin
never thinkin' it would end
never botherin'
to look within
afrid of what i might find then

too often run & gun
always reachin' for the Fun
burnin' out like the Sun
burnin' out 'till i was done

too seldom did i Enjoy
fearin' it was just a ploy
always wantin' a new Toy
unable to appreciate the moments of Joy

family & friends
i've watched 'em come to their ends
not grateful for the blessings
of whatever GOD sends
never lettn' old wounds mend

i've had my share
of love & lost
seldom allowing my Self to Care
seldom thinking of the Cost
nor the Price i'd pay
kept on doin' it My Way

but, Today
i can say
my Life's just been
My Life
but then agin'
ain't that what Life Be

lookin'back
i've come ta' See
that's what's made me Me

My Life
filled with happiness
& strife

You are life!
and Life is you!

No one can be you
for you are special!

Your Strife
Your Happiness

are uniquely
packed in a giftbox
that's tagged
with your name

It can be opened
and re-opened
at anytime
in your life

Happiness uniquely yours!

May Lu a.k.a. Sandie Angel :o)
