The Meaning of Life
Another funeral attended today
Squeezed between billable hours.
A life’s accomplishments recognized;
A day’s work to do.
Focus made on the small moments,
The quiet moments filled with love.
Allowing that one’s work is so much more
than the hours spent doing the job.
And permitting that pleasure is
successes and soirees and hard-won wins
to no less extent than it is
a family dinner with a green salad
followed by a well mixed drink.
