Life at times is a like a mystery novel
Some chapters read, some more to go
At other times it is like a confounding riddle
Hovering on the verge of solution but remaining unsolved
It has also been likened to a box of chocolates
As well as to a superhero movie with a villian, an underdog
And a damsel causing distress!
Some also call it a journey into the unknown
Made pleasurable by a like-minded partner
Whichever way you look at it
Life is a gift to be loved and lived
With a sense of humour and a feeling of gratitude.
