The Meaning in Life

img_9478

How can someone say life is meaningless?

Everywhere I look I can find it

Beauty in the meaning

Meaning in the beauty

Every time I see a smile turn into laughter

The corners of lips curve

The glint in an eye

A loud clap; an outburst of hilarity

The perfect timing of the right joke

I wonder how someone cannot see the meaning.

 

It is so full of meaning, this life

In the kindness of a friend

In the warmth of a hug

I am moved

Profoundly so

In the concern of a stranger

The sympathy in a nod

I wonder how someone cannot see the meaning.

 

Life bursts with meaning

In every cherry blossom there is the meaning

For it may bloom just a few days in the year

Yet when it blooms, it is alive and real

In the vastness of the sky

The faith in a prayer

In the capacity of my own hert

To feel another’s pain, and his joy

In sincere wishes

I wonder how someone cannot see the meaning.

 

It is so easy to find the meaning

Every time I hear someone hum a song

I see a skip in their step

And watch them dance along the way

So much meaning, in the power of words

In the worlds they open

If there is passion there is meaning

In the desire for anything there is the meaning

So I wonder how someone cannot see the meaning.

 

There is irrefutable meaning

In your deep, little eyes

In your thoughtful worry

And your long, funny sighs

Mostly there is meaning

In the love that I bear

For your small, beautiful life

And little acts of care

I really do wonder

How someone cannot see the meaning.
