My comings and my goings
Aren't as frequent as before
I seem to find the things I need
Right here inside my door
A picture in a wooden frame
A quilt a loved one made
A book about a place I saw
Some seashells that I saved
A crystal vase, an easy chair
Where those I love have sat
The cups that held the coffee
For the good friends I have met
Thanksgiving time and Christmas
And every holiday in between
The flowers and the greenery
That helped to set the scene
The only thing I long for
The only thing I need
Is the spirit of contentment
And a fresh brewed cup of tea
Karen Shaw Matteson
I like living. I have sometimes been wildly,
despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow,
but through it all I still know quite certainly that
just to be alive is a grand thing.
