"Your Zest For Life"

Updated on August 15, 2013

"Your Zest for LIfe"

A zest for life is what life's all about, to breath, live and be alive in a new world.
A zest for life is what life's all about, to breath, live and be alive in a new world.
Your zest for life is a blessing to be alive and to grow up and be somebody.
Your zest for life is a blessing to be alive and to grow up and be somebody.

" Your Zest For Life"

" Your Zest For Life"

You swam the channels of love

trying to hold onto your life.

Looking for your courageous strength from above.

Your zest for life kept you moving

In a constant direction that was soothing.

There were millions of your eggs, that didn't survive

But your zest for life kept you in stride.

As you travel in the birth canal, vigorously search for the light

Your body,mind and soul is still searching for the zest of life.

Your living cells of life was germinated by man

And your egg of life took a stand.

It gave you an appetite for a happy life.

In actuality he gave you the zest for life.

As you swim your way through curves, tucks and bends.

You are waiting for your spark of life to begin.

The zest for life keep you, swimming, fighting and looking for more.

You're headed straight for life's open door.

Your zest for life is a ferocious desires to be born.

On someone Else's blissful early morn.

You have traveled this same road before

But your zest for life didn't quite make it through life's door.

You know your mothers love awaits you in a world of life,opportunity and pain

But you being born again will never be the same.

Your zest for life is a constant desire, deep within your heart

Because of the opportunity of a brand new start.

Life's labor pains was not all in vain.

Because you emerged a crying infant

And things will never be the same.

Your zest for life, a will to live and loving parent in the end.

Stood standing, waiting with a baby blanket in hands.

      Creative one, this really brought tears to my eyes. So many babies never see the light of day, and for those that do survive, it truly is a wonderful and awesome blessing.
