Painful As It Is

Painful as it is

We face our mortality

In all that we do.

Just waking up to morning,

Walking a city sidewalk,

On a holiday,

Swimming on a summers day;

The fullness of life

By virtue of our living

Must eventually end.

Do not waste this time

Wallowing in past regrets;

Leave that to the fool.

Instead cherish each moment

For its utter perfection.


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
