“I Love Life”

I love life; I love each day,

I love when sunlight starts to stray

Through swaying trees, then pirouettes

enhancing dancing silhouettes.

 

I love life; I love the sound

Of feathered friends, who gather round,

and with each magic melody,

Provide a serenade that’s free.

 

I love life; I love the sight

Of cloud-drifts on a moonlit night.

I love the lap of sea on shore,

and every positive encore.

 

I love life; I love the kind

Of pleasures that invade the mind;

Of faces, places, moments rare,

So fine and beautiful to share.

 

I love many other things

the privilege of living brings.

Despite the trouble and the strife,

so much to cherish…I love life.

 

J.M. Robertson, Edinburgh
