Unfinished Symphonies

Must the song play 

All the way to the end 

In order to be beautiful? 

Must every person you meet 

Approve of you 

In order for you to feel worthwhile?

Must every one of your desires 

Have been accomplished 

For your life to have mattered?

How out of reach is contentment? 

Many of our symphonies 

In one way or the other 

Will likely be unfinished in our lifetimes-

Happiness is being able 

To live with that.
