Like a Thief

Like a Thief

It’s been too long, my friend!
The days turned into nights
Passing through my life
Like a thief stealing
His treasure
In the night.
The roses
Have bloomed.
The weather
Has transformed
The caterpillars
Into butterflies.
Yet, life goes on,
And it won’t
Wait for you;
It won’t slow down.
It just is–
Evanescent–
Full of wonder–
Temporary–
Momentary–
Fading–
Fleeting–
Brief–
Disappearing
Into the dust
Of the earth–
Life waits for
No one.
It continues
Whether you are
Willing or not.
It occurs when
You least expect it–
While you are busy
Planning out your future–
It can kick you
When you are down–
When you assume you
Can go no further
Because the muscles of
Your mind are sore
And worn out
Like a professional
Sports player
Accepting an injury,
But finding the courage
To push through.
Life happens–
Whether you want it to
Or not–
It’s like a beat-up
Pick-up truck
Driving on the horizon
To its destination
Only to break down.
Yet, somehow
Someone comes along
And helps repair your ride
At the right time
Throwing you off-course
But creating character–
Making you wiser–
