When One Thing Leads To Another

Updated on March 9, 2011

If We Could Only See It

In the short time we live on earth so many things take place

We are born and some day we will die

The time that we have is partially out of our control

We do not know when our plug will be pulled and all the water goes down the drain

When it took so long to fill

When we added just the right amount of hot and cold to make it something special

We felt the moment of perfect in a world that is far from perfect

We took the extra steps to add little bubbles to make so much more enjoyable

Now all we see is the wetness that life has left behind

So with the life that we have

Can we do better ?

How do we make sure we are not pointing in the wrong direction ?

When we want to go West

Maybe East is really where it is at

I have always found great happiness in going against the grain

By watching others who are different than me

Enjoy their life and then I can enjoy mine

Making sure I choose the life I want to live

Seeing my thoughts that don't hit the big picture screen

Thinking the things that make me unconditionally happy

From the simplest in nature to the most complex

There will never be an end to my stream of happiness

That flows without notice

It trickles from deep down under

It is so wonderful to be part of something so special

How do we tell others that we care about so much ? 

That life is such a joy to be spread like jelly on toast

I can't wait to bite into the sweetness

I live for the crunch

Even when the jelly runs off the side

I make no bones about trying to catch it with my finger or lips as quickly as I can

Not to waste one little bit of pleasure

I have found a real treasure

How to show others what they hold in their hand is not just a p&j sandwich but life

One that is lived and lived in so many ways we can never comprehend

From the colors that light up the sky like a beautiful background stage

From the sounds that give great meaning to all the adorable works of art

To the feelings that we can feel

Over and over again

A never ending cycle of comfort and joy

Replentished as soon as it is empty

There is always room for more

We can squeeze just a little more happiness in

Never giving it a thought

Because is what makes life so special

The people that we love so well

To see them happy as long as we can

To see everyone dance hand and hand

Maybe the time isn't right

But one day things will all come together

When that day comes I will be there

With my hand held out open for you to come to me

LIfe is just what I see

A wonderful life from here to eternity

      Darlene Sabella I often think the HubPages is just a dream.But I can follow the dream as far as it will take me.I am amazed at the number of people that love to write.I want to laugh.I want to cry.The talent that I look at and find here and still can't believe it.I know it is here before my very eyes.As plain as day.I guess when you appreciate something it is as simple as that.One blessing after another.Thanks to you and the people of the Hub world.
