One Heart, One Loss, One Day

I wanted to post on the Daily Prompt for today. It can be found at:
http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/09/10/daily-prompt-six/

The prompt is:
Write a six-word story about what you think the future holds for you, and then expand on it in a post. Photographers, artists, poets: show us SIX.

As we journey through this uncertain life
We live, we love, we laugh, we grieve
We can hope that days will be joyously filled
But we lift our heads high and try to believe.

We are given one heart and we protect it
Not that we won’t make mistakes in trust
Broken can be mended, just don’t harden
Give freely when in love, not just for lust.

We deal with the loss of those that we love
Sad, but one of the truths we must now live
We don’t forget them but we try to move on
Knowing they would want us to still give.

We are given each day the things that we need
However, wants that we have are not always met
We make the most of the time we are given
Hoping that love and life is what we might get.
