Maybe a Lifetime

Maybe this life was a gift and we unwrapped it soon,

Maybe the ribbon was of gold and we mistook it for dust,

Maybe the box was of wood and we broke it apart,

Maybe we are full of serendipity and anxiety…

 

Maybe we lost too many friends in this journey,

Maybe our family misses us more than anybody,

Maybe our passions, goals and ambitions play enemies,

Maybe we should consider Β the dearth of patience…

 

Maybe this life was meant to be peaceful,

Maybe the chaos just made it interesting,

Maybe we could just hang on a little more,

Maybe it should make us another level player…

 

Maybe it’s too early to say we are a failure,

Maybe the taste of success doesn’t last long,

Maybe it was never about numbers and measurement,

Maybe it was just all about giving and love…
