I am amazed at how high the highs are ..
and how low the lows!
I think the biggest surprise is that the lows
seem to catch me unaware...
they wait in the shadows
until I am distracted, unconcerned, beginning to take tentative steps..
and they cut me down at the knees.
The lows are so low!
and then just as fast
the tears all cried
the anger all spent
the emotions exhausted
the lows are gone
now the middle ground is here..
and soon there will be highs that will lift me above the sadness
and remind me how good life really is!
The highs in my life come
when I breathe free air
and hug my children
and spend time with family and friends
the highs in my life are greater then the lows by far
But the lows....
somehow catch me when I am least expecting it!
