Love of Life
Poem for Day 345 – 20151212
I have a love that does not match
the scant resources I have at hand.
So many people in all the world
offer adventures for both heart and soul.
If there was time to do them all
I'd be more people than I was born.
Kronos why must be too harsh
to meter his charge when love is nigh.
I've put the markers on events,
selected the contracts I must commit.
There are so many close at hand,
commitments block the ways I can play.
Could I achieve all there is to do?
My vigor and drive are inadequate.
I must rest at the end of the day
instead of striving to do another thing.
The love I have is for all things,
people to see and life to be lived.
To be involved with people all
would be my wish if there was enough of me.
