The Given Gift


Beautiful beginnings
And sometimes tragic ends
Life is a special gift
That everyone was given

So many don’t appreciate
So many cannot see
That this gift means so much to others
Including you and me

The essence of the youthful spirit
The wise of the old
Different skills come with age
And with age you gather more

Unwavering faith
The compassion to help those in need
So many have high hopes
So many want to accomplish their dreams

Beautiful beginnings
And sometimes tragic ends
Life is a beautiful gift
Yet so many try to make other’s gift end

If only everyone appreciated
And respected others gift
The world would be a better place
Because senseless killing would end

“Life is  a gift given to each and every one of us. We have no right to take others gift away”-Monica Renata
