Fulfillment is a song that one must sing
Or bear the sullen silence of the heart.
Remember: Love of life requires music,
The joy one dances to throughout the day,
Yearning for the gifts one has sustained.
Every gift is one that one must bring
Into one's daily life with skill and art,
Giver and receiver both, or lose it,
Having lost a few along the way,
Though treasuring still the ones one has retained.
