Often I’ve wondered how life would be
If we had all the things we always wanted
If all our dreams always came true
And our prayers answered every time we prayed
It sounds like the perfect place to be
But is it really as perfect as I want it to be
I’d rather have the occasional heartache
The brickbats and the surprise accolade
Than to never fully appreciate
How perfect the imperfections make our life
How we are made stronger through our strife
How a loss makes you feel gratitude for
All the things that are at your door…
I’ll live each day with all I have & with my all
And believe that the future will unfold as its meant to be
That the past is only a small line in the annals of history.
