To Live

To wake

To breath

To hold a thought and plant a seed

To stand

To stretch

To run about

To hear a whispered word

To shout!

To see

To hear

To wipe away a single tear

To kiss

To hug

To grab a hand

To write your names into the sand

To climb

To jump

To take a risk

To laugh

To cry

To reminisce

To be a part of someone’s dreams

To share life’s wonders

To go to extremes

To smile

To wink

To push yourself up to the brink

To travel

To share

To care

To linger there

To spark a thought

To guide a hand

To help another understand

To be yourself

To know you felt

To question life

To be OK to not be always right

To conquer fear

To persevere

To want

To give

But most of all

    hi penny .. great poem! i like how you brought in both the negatives and positives of life . xx
    life for me is about living , experiencing , feeling, experiencing fun , joy , having good times and i get sad becuase most of the time i dont experience life i simply feel im existing .. life is for living for EXPERIENCING if you cannot experience then how are you living , that makes me sad .. i wish i could truly and properly live my life and feel more then i feel . hugs

                Good Morning my friend.. this is a lovely poem you have written here and one in which you have mentioned so many things I think most folk dream of and value.... It reminds me tho that obtaining or achieving many of them takes a lot of effort and determination... Bless you LG........... Neville
