#10 Life

I am always amazed at the tenacity of life
From plants coming up in small cracks in rock or concrete
To life hanging on in bodies ravished and racked in pain
Some take life for granted, never thinking it will run out
But I have seen life snatched from agile bodies far too young
Snatched from the best souls that I miss so deeply
I too have come close to the edge
I wake every day, grateful for another sunrise
Another chance to fail and stand again
Another chance to see your eyes and smell a rose
To breath another day
