Do you ever think...?

Do you ever think we experience heartache to know love?
Do you ever think we see darkness to know light?
Do you ever think we have illness to know health?
Do you ever think we experience bad times to know good times?
Do you ever think we feel anger to know remorse?
Do you ever think we act irresponsible to know regret?
Do you ever think we feel sadness to know happiness?
Do you ever think we experience loss to know gratitude?


I know love and I have it
I see the light in everything
I have health with sickness
I am enjoying the good times
I am sorry for mistakes I have made
I don't really regret being irresponsible, that was all fun
I am happy
I am grateful


  1. What a beautiful poem and photos to go with it.
