And what remains is love

Looking back across the span of a lifetime, 
There can be so many mountains 
That we saw but failed to climb; 
So many journeys anticipated 
But never realized; so many oceans 
We could have crossed but didn’t — 
Yet here we stand, on the solid ground 
Of our own unique experiences, 
Secure in the awareness 
 That what life we’ve lived, we’ve done our best 
To live as thoughtfully and graciously 
As we were capable at the time, 
And trusting that we’ll fill what years are left 
With as much love and grace 
As our overflowing hearts will allow.
