Dancing with life

(To my dear friend Tag)

A will to live
A fight to stay around
A desire to see another tomorrow
A joy to be alive
A refusal to give up
A cry for another chance

Living, breathing…
Not only existing
But lively living!

Dancing with life
Singing with God
Embracing love

Dealing with pain
Facing the unknown
Accepting what it is…

Rejoicing time
Bewitching chances
Conquering fears
Blessing the moments

Gripping each feeling
Surrendering to life

Living, breathing…
Not only existing
But lively living!

O Gabi, I'm in tears. That was so beautiful and heartening. You are wonderful my friend.
All my love to you and yours in distant Zambia.

Gabriela Abalo said...

Your courage is a great inspiration!
It put things under perspective, makes us stop and ponder what's really important and what's not.

Keep strong and lively living.

Bewitchment chances. Nice line!

Oh..this is something I should share with Mike. Such strength in it, and longing too. A powerful combination. You, with your love and light, reach far!

Gabriela Abalo said...

She Writes: welcome to the blog… Yes... that is the way I believe we should handle chances… bewitching and maneuvering them to our like.

W&W: I’m touched with your comment. The words were inspired by a beautiful soul, so now you can pass them on to another beautiful soul. From reading your blog I almost feel like I also know Mike.

Gabi - This is just beautiful and full of love. I love the family we have created here. The caring is so heart-felt and real, even though none of us have met each other.

Gabriela Abalo said...

we are all in this openly sharing our heart, giving and receiving love... that is what brings us together!
I like what you said about us being family!

I can't believe you're so far away. Lovely poem. I left something for you on my blog as a small token of appreciation for all your generous comments and support of me.

Lisa said...

Oh how I love, "singing with God." So beautiful. And your photos...amazing. I stopped over from "Straight from Hel." I'm so glad I did!

Gabriela Abalo said...

Julie: welcome to the blog and thank you for your support.

Yvonne: thank you my dear friend for giving me the Sunshine Award, I’m touched by your kindness. I really enjoy reading your blog and will keep visiting it.

Lisa: welcome to the blog. I’m happy to know you like the pictures. Through my “experimental “ photography I’m trying to represent the way I see life… each of them tell a different story, each of them are a source of loveNlight.

Surrendering and dancing to life...Uplifting poem.

Gabriela Abalo said...

Paul: The poem reflects the way I imagine my dear friend Tag living life. Not giving up but lively living each moment as if it was the very last.

Thanks for stopping by.

Your poem expresses the desire to live fully - pain and all - so eloquently!
