GUESTBOOK 156 (2015): “Have I Lived” (by John White)

   *  *  *

Have I lived?

Did I dispense love freely?

Were moments of joy cherished –

moments of sorrow embraced?

Have I been a true friend?

Were strengths used, maximized –

weaknesses improved, reduced?

Have I given of myself?

Have I served only myself

or have I helped those in need?

Did I fulfill a purpose?

Were days simply calendar marks

or has my time been spent to leave a mark?

On a day when, in honesty,

I can affirm the better of this

then I can be sure that

I have lived.
