Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of luck. Illness, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test limits of your soul.

Without these small tests, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere; safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless.

Sometimes a person will come into your life and you know right away that he or she were meant to be there…to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or help figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who that person may be but once you lock eyes, you know at that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way.

And, If that someone loves you, love them back unconditionally. Not only because that person loves you, but also because they are teaching you to love and open your heart and eyes to little things. Make every day count. Appreciate everything with that person that you possibly can, for you may never experience it again.

Talk together as you have never talked before, and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love, break free and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right share in the highs and lows of the emotion that is the essence of our lives.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Not really a poem but rather some "Dime Store" or in this day and age of inflation "Dollar Store" philosophy that might make a point.

I so agree with you...Everything in life
is for a purpose..People come and go from
ones life..This helps us to grow and
understand life..A person has entered my
life and no matter what the outcome, I will
remember and love this person until death
and after..
