Give and Take

Don’t hate life for what it takes from you.
Life gave you something so loved it deserved to be missed.
Between your first breath and your last, life provides it all,
so be thankful not resentful.

Should you lament a delicious meal once eaten?
To focus on an empty plate is a twisted perspective.
The chance of loss does not diminish value, it increases it —
what is permanent is oftentimes taken for granted.
