being alive
is a blessing
being needed
is wanted
being in love
is a gift
being yourself
is important
your well being
develops from the joy surrounding you
develops with your experiences
you absorb the good and the bad
in this world
in your life
and carefully analyze it
no matter the good or the bad
being aware
of what makes you yourself
what made you fall in love
what needs you
what makes you continue to live
makes you a complete
human being
