Living life to the full

I will be like
someone who cannot
hide their love
but my joy will become 
and everyday
and like a lover
I will find out
exactly what it is like
to be the happiest,
the only one in creation
to really 
how much,
I’m just a hair’s breadth
from dying.

David Whyte, Mortality My Mistress [extract]
