Sylvia Larane Green (Ogden, Utah)
A Single Life
I only have a single life to live;
To the world I strive my utmost to give.
I aim to shed joy in another’s life––
Attempt to carry peace where abides strife.
I unselfishly spread my love abroad;
My existence I want not to be void.
I wish to lead people in the right direction––
Of positiveness be a reflection.
I desire to serve my fellow man,
Aiding him in any manner I can.
If I can manage to influence someone,
It will be a great deed to have done.
