The puzzle pieces of my life
scatter from time to time;
but I always pick them back up,
In this life game of mine.
Most of my pieces fit like a glove,
but a few are frayed and worn.
But it makes no difference to me;
I love them like the day I was born.
My little pieces came to life,
and traveled along with me.
Little snapshots of dreams and loss,
and many a beautiful memory.
They mark my way like a road map;
showing the places I've been.
Frowns for the times I've struggled,
and the good times marked with a grin.
But through it all-hugs and tears,
I'm blessed to call it my own;
and carry my pieces along with me,
to show how much I've grown.
Inspired by a puzzle and its parallel to life....
They call me Alaurilee
- Serving Hugs on a Platter and Tears in a Teacup
- I've been writing poetry from the age of 12. It has, and always will be my outlet, my voice. Join me on my journey . . . I can write about almost anything. :) ~ Life doesn't come with a shiny new book; no users manual of answers to find with one look. Life comes with doors that open and shut; and paths laid before us to be followed or passed up. There's things we can learn and things we may teach; hearts that may find us and souls we may reach. Guaranteed on this journey are teacups of tears; and pains that might hurt us may age us by years. But the beauty of life, love, laughter and giving; come from serving hugs on a platter each and every day we're living. ~
