There are times in my life when my body aches.
I am getting older, it is to be expected.
There are times in my life when tears fall gently down my cheeks.
I am a caring person, so that is to be expected.
There are times in my life when I can understand another’s suffering,
I have been blessed with compassion so it is to be expected.
I have experienced joy, sorrow, love, dislike, the rain on my face
and the sun warming my whole body, the flowers
blowing gently in the breeze,
I have felt utter loss and complete defeat only to rise again
and never to stop being a caring heart.
I have experienced all these things and more because
I am human and it is all to be expected.
I have lived, but all is well with my Soul.
