BEAUTY OF LIFE


I wonder as I look around
at all the beauty that I've found.
I've found it in the smallest places.
I've found it in the smiles on faces.
I've found it in majestic sights.
I've found it in an eagle's flights.
And as I've seen it with my eyes
I've slowly come to realize
that all the beauty that I see
belongs to you and belongs to me.

This beauty should be shared by all.
Each beating heart should never fall
Quiet, never to beat again
without the memory of where or when
it captured the sights it got to see.
For what is life?
What can it be?
If not for beauty that's all around
you have not seen, nor have you found
what it is we came here for.
You came to know beauty, nothing more.

    I shall not waste any time but say immediately this poem has a spring in its step. I'm not even going down the road of using others words. Mine are mine and I read what you wrote about 'stealing, ' instead I salute you for your writing of this poem. It is so easy to read. Well done (Report) Reply

    Someone on this site suggested that i plagiarized this poem. They are either demented or jealous of the fact that they cannot compose a poem. I submitted this poem way back in May 2010 and wrote in in the year 2009. I suggest you read it in one of my published books. whoever you are. Google my name and you will see I write thousands of poems and don't need to steal anyone's material. Edwina Reizer (Report) Reply

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
