Marsha Newman’s poem appears in her new book “Until the Last Petal Falls.”

I believe  I’m alive, because with each sunrise that greets me I breathe colors… the gold of the sun, the blue of the sea.

I believe I’m alive, because I see rainbows, the birth of the stars & the man in the moon.

I believe I’m alive, because I see the blossoms of  spring, the mountains majesty, and the grace & beauty of a tree.

I believe I’m alive, because I feel the rain, the warmth of the sun cradles me and sand gives warmth to my naked feet.

I believe I’m alive, because I have a need to learn, to understand, to give & forgive, to be curious, adventurous, compassionate, & kind.

I believe I’m alive, because of the life I have given & the love I have lost. Because I feel, I grow, I love.

I AM ALIVE, because I love the gift of the journey and embrace each day, each moment, each treasure given with great appreciation & true gratitude!
