You and you and you

And from this Earth
You will sprout
You will grow
And you will love.

Nothing is ever yours to claim
But to tend
To enjoy
To share.

To you,
The Sun, the Moon, the Stars.
To you,
The Rain.

Winter, Summer, Spring,
And Fall
All yours!

Flowers and birds,
Mountains and seas,
For you and you and you.

Today is yours
Tomorrow is not promised.
May you find love
May you give love back.

If you stumble and fall
Get right back up!
You are meant to
To grow.

Life will bring you on your knees
When it does, take note
But rise!
Learn from it
Look forward
Because yesterday is gone.

Time is timeless. You are not!
To Earth you will return the same way you came, –
With Nothing!
This is you and you and you
All in equal measure.

  1. What delightful poetic wisdom! Speaks strongly to my heart … we are just momentary visitors, guests who will soon leave. Are we leaving this world a better place, that’s the real question you so gently put πŸ™‚

  2. Wonderful sentiment, Angela, expressed warmly, and with a flowing grace.

    Truly, we are nothing more than caretakers, passing on to others what was left to us originally. Maybe we may contrive an improvement or two, but ours is just the merest flash of light on the eternal.

    Gorgeous poem!

  4. Rien n’est Γ  nous.
    Beaucoup de choses nous passent entre les mains par moment mais nous devons finalement tout lΓ’cher.
    Nous pouvons juste garder une espΓ©rance dans l’avenir mais mΓͺme cela nous ne l’emporterons pas dans la tombe.
