The Mysteries Of Life

At all the sunsets that have come and passed,
I’ve wondered if my life has gone by too fast.
Sparkling, the blue sea is a sapphire.
My eyes are in a trance as I admire,
as if the sea holds something we don’t know;
All of life’s secrets are way down below.
No one has the key to these mysteries.
All we have is our thoughts and memories.
Some of them we hold so dear to our hearts,
some tear our soul and may rip us apart.
Yet the ocean still sparkles and is blue,
while wind releases dreams we could pursue.
What happens in life comes for a reason,
as fireflies glow at a time of season.
Life will always have its ups and its downs,
putting a smile on us or a frown.
Either one will eventually come our way,
causing us to learn something every day.
As the clock keeps on ticking and time turns,
I look at my life and what I have learned.
