Poem: Life Cycle

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Life cycle is about her thinking back on her memories of the past years on the eve of her turning another year older. She knows each of her days are numbered and counts her blessings. She hopes the new day brings her new memories to treasure.

"The Impossible Dream - by Susan Boyle"

Life Cycle

She flips through the pages of her life,

dusting off a few cherished memories

she keeps on the back burner of her mind.


She knows her days are numbered,

counting her blessing with each step,

grateful for every rainbow that crosses her path

keeping her sheltered from the storms.


She looks forward to the coming day

hoping for beams of sunshine to fill her heart,

making precious treasures

she can age like a fine wine.

"Imagine - by John Lennon "
