Maria C. Costa
A Special Request
I have no time
To waste any longer.
I just want to live
Each day in wonder.
The past was glorious,
The present is different,
Has brought maturity, a new mission.
Other horizons inhabit the mind,
Inviting the soul to be serene, kind.
God has made a special request:
'Keep active, be helpful and positive,
Accept your plight every day you live
'cause the future always comes next...
