Among the Living

Regina Puckett


The day was offered but I wanted to turn it away

I thought that just for once I couldn’t face another day

But there it was staring me in the face with expectation

A beautiful gift, a way to start over, a wonderful creation

So I threw off the covers and did my best not to grumble

For this offering I knew I should be grateful and humble

Because one day that beautiful gift won’t be mine for the giving

It will belong to those who are still here among the living
