For I Can Hear Life

For I Can Hear Life

A Poem by Nolo Segundo
"

It seems a natural irony that only as you approach the 'last lap' of your life's race will you fully savor its innate beauty.

"
When our once young selves turn stale
and old and old and old... then
in that beauty I still see,
I can hear life...I can hear life
as it calls out its love song, its
plaintive plea to my ageless soul.

And when death makes its awkward entrance,
my soul, sudden cut adrift from its moorings,
will carry that beauty, that beauty of a life lived,
with all its loves and all its joy and all its tears,
to the next world, to the next beautiful dream.
