'The Brevity Of Life'
Life is but a brief paragraph
in Eternity's book.
Our moments fly by swifter than the beating thrush of wings.
We race towards an inescapable conclusion
Knowing of our eventual departure.
Lives become fuller, richer and deeper
When they are lived with a sense of the eternal in mind.
Moments become more precious as we realize our allotted time
The brevity of our days.
When we live with the realization that life is but a shadow, a vapor,
We appreciate it more and spend it fully.
