simply amazing

sometimes you’re amazed
by the simplest thing
like a walk in the rain
or a kiss on a swing
 
by the sound of one voice
in a whisper so sweet
its presence alone
makes your life seem complete
 
and you think to yourself
how the grandest of plans
was serving your heart
when it slipped through your hands
 
when it left you exposed
to the very same strife
that taught you the skill
to succeed in this life
 
how it opened your eyes
to a world filled with more
than those pretty yet petty
pursuits once adored
 
and ambition was moved
from the details of schemes
to the labor required
for realizing dreams
 
then, in that moment
though somewhat unclear
you sense there’s a reason
to why we’re all here
