Time Of Life


Time of Life

Precious, endless, unstoppable, time.

Days turn to nights
Todays into yesterdays.

What is, was and what could be, is.

Take time to live your life in full

Take time to smell a flower

Take time to pick up a child

Take time to play

Take time to laugh, and sadly enough
Time to cry.

Your future will soon be your past

Your past just a memory.

So do not try to stop time
For you will only stop yourself
From living at your fullest

Take time to bundle up your losses
And
Turn them into gains
Without ever looking back at what was.

And be so grateful that you do have that time

…The time of life.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
