Alive but not living
Dying but not dead
Nature’s unforgiving
Leave nothing left unsaid

Lilies do no strive
Just take the sun and rain 
To simply be alive
Abide return remain

Only we remember
Only we recall
The winter of December
The burnished gold of Fall

Nature gives us life
And takes it away
Blind to peace and strife
But steadfast night and day

So live and love our story 
Though Nature’s beauty dies
It returns in glory 
Night becomes sunrise

That's beautiful and so true.

It's lovely to see someone else post a poem here after so long. Thank you. I needed this today.
