Life Let’s Live it Right

Updated on February 6, 2018

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia. I have a wonderful cat named Sid.

Let’s live life,

like it was a symphony,

a wonderful song -

full of love and joy.

Like a raging sea,

full of waves crashing

and wild breezes blowing by.

Let’s live life,

like a carnival,

full of passion

and many moments in the sun.

With drums pounding,

a beat to the heart

and feet that want to dance.

Let’s live life

with a joyful smile each day,

with hopes for a wondrous time,

full of bright thoughts.

Without any fear,

for what the future can bring,

prayer can keep the bad at bay.

Let’s live life,

remembering the good times and the bad,

the tears and the sorrow -

holding precious memories in our hearts.

Knowing that our loved ones,

who have passed on,

will be by our side till we meet again.

Let’s live life,

looking toward a future,

where the clouds have silver linings

and days are full of golden sun.

As though there might be no tomorrow,

let’s push aside all sorrow

and hold on to those we love.

Let’s live life,

telling those we care for,

that our feelings for them know no end,

that they are special and always will be.

Making each day special,

finding something to bring us joy -

each and every shining moment that we live.

      This poem made me smile from beginning to end. I think you knocked it out of the park with this one. I could read and play this all day. You can see and feel the difference. I am so happy for you. Thank you for sharing and caring.

      How you live your life is up to you. The tone and tenor of your life song can be upbeat or melancholy. The former makes the song more worthwhile.
