Alive

By , Massapequa, NY

Marshmallow clouds painted over cotton candy skies,

Birds singing their tunes amidst the sunrise,

Crickets chirping softly all through the night,

Reminders of how wonderful it is to be alive.

 

The fresh breeze that lives by the seaside,

Hints of lavender rolling in with the tide,

Ocean spray misting your face on a warm day,

Reminders that in the end, everything will be okay.


The scent of clean laundry and home cooked meals,

Stories by the fire and running through fields,

Laughs shared with friends who brighten your life,

Reminders of how great it feels to be alive.

 

Simple things that make your heart sing,

Moments and memories worth cherishing,

Wishing you could relive each and every one,

Reminders that life is not to be taken advantage of.

 

Rose petals dripping after fallen rain,

Sun shining through clouds onto your windowpane,

Reflecting on how times have changed,

Reminders that things will always turn out okay.

 

Seeing the beauty in everything,

Remembering moments with clarity,

Never forgetting the best of times,

Reminders of what it’s like to be alive.
