Here We Are (poem)

Wonder with me

Wonder hits home

Did I do enough with my life

Could I have done more


So many people

So many heights

Reaching out for that something

Deep within their soul


Numberless talents

Numberless goals

Confusing are the currents

In a sparkling stream


But here we are right now

Sharing a touch of something

A break perhaps for thought

A chance to step back awhile


What made this jewel

Master of its unique rainbow

Shining new colors

Shining places missed


This fragrant flower

Who fashions the breath of life

Some live in fields

Some die for kisses


There amid a smile

Rests the only true answer

Wonder with me

Wonder hits home

Music only

One could write a whole book just on "Wonder."

Many famous authors have. I thought your opening was very powerful.

"Wonder with me

Wonder hits home

Did I do enough with my life

Could I have done more?"

I love the wonder that opening stanza provokes in the reader. "Could I have done more?" A heck of a writing prompt if I have ever heard one!

Good poem, with nice music to accompany it.

Many of us at my age (60) have wondered if we could have done more. Very well expressed and a nice poem.
