    Toward the Heaven; the flash in the sky
    Is where my heart now lie
    Wrapped in its beautiful grace,
    Feeling the sun warmth on my face
    Bringing once again a smile to my eyes
    For life is a blessing, a natural high
    And death comes with birth, but not today
    No.
    Not today.
    Living to the fullest
    no longer in a dream
    Feeling the life of reality

    So sweet, yes so sweet

    I'm allowed once again
    To feel the coolness touch my skin
    Wrapped in the warmth of his gentle hand
    Cool my fever, a palm leaf fan
    Inhaling a second breath of knowledge
    Healing my soul releasing the toxic
    So
    I
    Can
    Breathe
    again this day
    Unfinished business, who can say
    Yet I write everyday,

    The mellow of the sea
    Comes to me with an ease
    Learning what is expected of me

    Welcoming the flow of life
    A mental picture of paradise
    Another chance to live life
    To help in the creation of paradise

    Learning how to set the mind free
    To plant roots and grow like a tree
    Breaking loose those mental chains
    Healing the soul removing the pain

    It all matters, yes it counts
    To live our life without doubts
    Like the Hours in the day
    The Minutes in the hours
    Making every second count

    Making every second count, for tomorrow is not promised to anyone. I loved how you posed this, living through pleasure, pain, and everything in between, just living...life. Flow on Blue, so great to read you.
