Song

Your days can line up one after the other
or they can be shuffled like a deck of cards.
  
You can look through your days like you'd look through a window
or a set of binoculars, or a list of "things to do."
  
The days can roll forward like breakers in a storm
or lap toward high-tide on a calm summer morning.
  
The days of your life could be a long saunter
through scenery you know well, with companions you love,
  
or they could be more like a short walk alone,
lost but amazed at the scenery.
