“A Cherished Life” The Sunday Whirl #170

There’s always a light surrounding me,
a shimmer of life which I receive
with passion and pleasure.
A magic that resides in living
through this beautiful hum.

While passing a stranger on
a narrow walkway. We smile
saying hello, thriving within different
special spaces. Each our own
yet somehow we are one.

I’m thankful for every breath I’m given,
for the sunrise I’m gifted with.
Words spoken to me
by family and friends — reassuring,
this is mine and I cherish it.

  1. What a wonderful sense of acceptance…life itself isn’t always wonderful but that we have it is perhaps..and i love those little shared but non-invasive moments too..a peaceful Sunday to you Pamela xo

  2. How rarely do we really count our blessings. Perhaps each time we see how sick the world is we should do a stockcount!

  3. Lovely, Pam. I too love the smiles of strangers on the street. Don’t think anyone would know this is a wordled poem. Well penned.

  4. 🙂 Joy is found in deep appreciation. This is beautiful and affirming. Brava!

  5. One of your very best. I love that word ‘cherish’.

  6. What a grateful poem, reminds to appreciate our life as a gift! ~ Thanks

  7. So life affirming, wonderfully positive. Thank you.

  8. What a beautiful reminder to be grateful for all we have in the moment. I see this as healing, acceptance–a lot more than mere survival.

  9. Pamela, I love this poem and your awareness, even in the midst of sorrow, that life, in all its guises, is still a gift. The poem you wrote saying that is a gift to your readers. And that shimmering light you live in? It is love, and some of it is from Michael. This I believe with all my heart.

  10. So glad for you my friend. This is a beautiful piece of writing, well woven and intense with the joy of just breathing…thank you,

    The simple things—a breath, a smile from a stranger—are usually the things we cherish most. Thanks for the reminder.

  12. There is so much to be thankful for Pamelita! Very true! There are sick people around who foster hatred and commit killings without conscience. Why must this be allowed of them. There ought to be brakes applied. Good for showing the way!
