THE BEAUTIFUL LIFE
November 6, 2006

This is more of a declaration than a poem, written at a time of separation, but strangely a blissful peace.


I am Blessed.... By health if not fitness
By love if not admiration
By comfort beyond my appreciation if not wealth
By sight to see beauty if not insight
By my senses, if not by sense at all times
By my children, if not by their behavior
By my God, if not my complacency

I am Blessed.... Because of who you are, not by how I fall short
Because of what you've done and nothing I have done
Because of how you love, despite of how I act
