Live the Moment

Live the Moment

A Poem by Phil Sanders
"

Life Thoughts

"
Life is a journey of hope and commitment
Interspersed with moments of despair …
The darkness encloses the mind and gives such gloom
But when the beacon of true love appears..
Then contentment awakes and casts a ray of happiness around ..
The world becomes a kaleidoscope of pleasure …
Children’s laughter echoes continuously …
The smile of joy enlightens your soul …
Walks become adventures .. holding hands is a thrill …
Kisses become oceans of desire .. as you sail the waters of sensuality ..
Moments of sheer ecstasy are blown on the winds of love …
A touch becomes a history … a hug is a lifetime…
A look is the burning need of excitement yet to be …
So walk the shores of delight with your lover …
Ride the thermals of pure passion .. and sail the river of yearning
For tomorrow quickly comes with the threat of nevermore..
Enjoy the moment .. make love and enthuse over each other
Time is a metronomic pattern of ever lessening opportunity
Live the seconds .. and the hours will take care of themselves …

Love is not really found that often..Lust, convenience, ownership, having to, fear of being alone etc.. often are reasons people marry. When a person comes along that you know you can put up with not just their good points but also their short comings and still care more about them every day..WHAM..than you really know you have something special..God bless you and [C]..Valentine

The ending is perfect for the visions that the poem gives. This reads like a Mantra on Life according to Phil, like listening to a holy man explain his wisdom. Maybe The Beatles should have stayed with you rather than disappear off to India - the beginning of their demise. I've a feeling they would have had a lot more inspiration from you than spending time learning to meditate the worlds problems away.

Phil - I cannot agree more with the overall message of this poem. In fact, I was at my mother's retirement dinner last night and that was the general "theme". I will be writing about it, and posting it, later today.

Great piece on life - first line grabs your attention with it's truth - and it's so true that love makes ordinary events special - and the last line really pulls it all together - kudos!!!

Thats a wonderful way to sum up life ..thats what it is but sometimes these moments of despair linger forever.
A touch becomes a history � a hug is a lifetime�I love this line
