Life

by Angela Prew

If, as they say, life is like a book
what sort of book?
Is it a history of events,
times, memories?
Is it a romance – stories
of love ending in
happy ever after?
Or, perhaps a tale
of adventure, of derring-do,
winning to the end against
all odds?
A comedy, maybe,
filled with light and laughter. Or
a tragedy with no happy ending?
Tales of battle, of endeavour
achieving – what?
Maybe it is all these things
encompassing
love, lust, loss. and death.
But for you and me
our lives are nearly over
yet together we are writing
Chapter One.
