Life

What is a life well-lived?
What moments mark and define it as such?
Is it the people we encounter?
The places that take our breath away?
What makes a life well lived?
Is it the memories we make?
The missed opportunities?
The moments of regret?
The words left unsaid?
What makes a life well-lived?
Is it the times we went against the grain?
The paths we forged for ourselves?
The times we were struck with fear?
What makes a life well-lived?
Is it like the cliches?
The times our breath was caught in our chest?
Heart palpitating and drum beating in our ears?
Darkness and loneliness?
Anguish and broken-heartedness?
What makes a life well-lived?
A cocktail of loss, doubt, anxiety and worry?
Shaken with excitement, adrenaline, connection,
But what makes a life well-lived?
Is love.
