Need never be alone

We all come into this life alone...
and when we depart
it is a business we must do... alone
in between, no matter how long
or brief, is our existence
whatever we make of it
there is so much beauty to find
if only we let it come to us
but mostly people hurry
worry... and speed through... life
if we all just stop periodically
to look around us... we would realize
yes, this is good...
the sun to warm us,
the sea to soothe our rough edges
the rain to wash us clean
books to teach... people to learn from
everything has its own enchantment
and we need never be... alone
