The Precious Jewel Called Life

You don’t have to earn the right to be here
Or justify your existence
Or prove your worthiness
The exquisite fact that existence
Has brought you here as you
Is enough
For you to celebrate
And stand in wonder

We take it all for granted
Until the last moment
Or until love is snatched from us
And then we see the miracle

Make that last moment every moment
Don’t forget the simple miracle that is life.
