Someone asked what defines my existence,
I pondered long and wondered about my pertinence,
What is the one thing I cannot live without,
That one thing that I have that I could flout,
Would it be something material I have like money or cars or a big piece of land?
But what would I do with these things that would one day be sand?
And then I wondered about all my friends,
Wondered about all the times we have spent,
All those memories I hold so dear,
Those moments of happiness, sadness, hope and fear,
I remembered all the times id been in beautiful love,
The times when my heart had fluttered as gracefully as a dove,
But nothing compared to my first thought, not the blue skies or the beautiful birds,
Cause dad and mom, I hold closest to me, all your beautiful words…
