To Live

To soar, birds in blue skies; 
To run, deer prancing through forests;
To swim, otters splashing in rivers;
To leap; gazelles frolicking in fields.

To smile; children racing down slides;
To laugh; friend’s memories of things past;
To shout; team’s thoughts of victory;
To embrace; father’s holding their children.

To awake; sunlight rising above the horizon;
To blow; winds sweeping through canyons;
To rustle; dried leaves skimming over grass;
To shine; nature’s brilliance changing seasons.

To smell; sweet rose bushes filling the air;
To hear; babies playing with puppies;
To see; life reels in full-color snapshots;
To touch; essences manifested;
To feel; love unconditional.
