It Is

It hurts
When it smacks you in the face,
Mocking, gloating,
In triumph, "I told you so."

It aches
Like the dull throb
Left after a dear one
Has departed
To a green
And pleasant place,
Freed from shackles of earthly existence.

It is unfair
Like caustic criticism
That burns your ears,
"It's not good enough,"
That bites you
With a grim smirk,
And bequeaths to you harm
And a frown to go with it.

It is indifferent
As time,
Which snatches away
Your hope, your health,
Your youth,
All that you cling to
When the supports
You depend on are removed.

It is caring
When, on occasion,
It lifts your spirits
With a sincere letter,
Reminding you that somewhere,
Someone is thinking of you.

It is loving
Like a wool blanket
Which wraps itself
Around you
And keeps you warm
When it's snowing outside.

It is beautiful
Like a bright pink and orange sunset
Whose golden glow
Makes the trees sparkle
In the breeze
And quiets your thoughts.

It is feeling
Like all emotions, all pain,
All hurt, all happiness,
All that you touch with your hands,
All that stings you,
All that bites you,
All that warms your heart
With music and words.

My friend,
It's life.
