I’ve Been Thinking

Driving, I thought

Of life and death

How some folks live more

In only a handful of years

Than some who barely scratch

Life’s surface after decade upon decade

Of blood coursing through veins

A heart beating, lungs expanding,

Going through the motions

But that’s not living.

That’s marking time.

  1. Leslie, I love this. It really is my kind of free verse poem. I might want to use it for my end of life Memorial Service. It pushes me to live large.
