What is Life? by Anneliese Garrison, RN
© written 10/22/00


Alone in a crowd
qiuet in the mist of commotion
I watch life pass by....

What is Life?

As the people pass hurriedly by
No one stops to talk
As if they were shy--

I catch a glimpse of someone starring
He turns away as if I was darring....

What is Life?

Out the window I gaze
I watch life
But what do I see
through life's hurriedly haze?

I see a couple hug
Showing obvious signs of love....

A child crys for a mother
A hug a kiss and then another....

In a dark alley corner
a tear is wiped away.

A homeless shelter...
a blanket for warmth
food for their hunger.

This is life....

As the people pass hurriedly by.....
