Loving life

2016-07-07 19.55.08-3

There are times in life when things don’t go as you planned, and you are taken in a season of grief. It may not actually mean that it will be a fully sad season, it could be full of joy and zest of life, but the days where you do grieve you are plunged into an abyss that glues you to the floor.

You thought you were grieving one thing,
you fool,
you are grieving everything
your whole life,
as you thought it would be,
is shattered and lost

it takes time to rebuild
even things
that get broken
how much more
a living being
whose soul was torn
like last year’s autumn leaves
battered in a storm

When that storm is over and the clouds clear, you may realise you actually love your life – as it is. Earlier today I enjoyed a moment of sitting on my own, having coffee, reading, looking through the window of a café and I realised that regardless of disappointments I love my life. Probably because I actually simply love life.
