A Beautiful Life

Poem written on : 8/8/2018

Through many trials

Through some regrets

I came to see

A beautiful life

 

Had it not been for surgeons

Had it not been for pastors

Had it not been for doctors

Had it not been for teachers

 

Had it not been for my family

Had it not been for friends

Had it not been for managers

Had it not been for you

 

Who knows where I’d be

What gifts I wouldn’t see

What love I would miss

What joy be absent

 

What a beautiful life I lead

Though I may miss some worldly success

Had it not been for all of you

I may not have ever succeeded

  1. Sometimes it takes helps from others to realize how fortunate your own life really is. Your words speak volumes and I hope it can help someone else see the happiness waiting for them in their own life.

  2. I love the beauty and positivity of this piece. Too many people these days do not practice the habit of feeling grateful for what we all have and focus too much on the negatives and what they don’t have. This poem reminds us of the need to stop and remember all we have to be grateful for.
