A Life Well Lived

A poem.

It is in the caring
and in the loving
of others
that we find
the deepest level
of meaning
in our lives.

For our lives are shaped,
enriched, enhanced,
through the sharing
of each other’s
journeys if
only for a
a moment in time.

In this life,
when we find others
who also
encourage our dreams,
and accept all of
our humanness,
we truly find the best
of all possibilities.
