David Barlow

Live, Love, Laugh.

Live, Love, Laugh there may be no tomorrow.
This thing I read and made me think,
Of just how short our life is.

Of all the hopes and dreams we have,
That pass us by or others steal,
Cos times not right for them.

We live just once; time is short
And every day is precious.
Let no one steal your dreams.

Live, Love, Laugh as if there’s no tomorrow.
Make your dreams reality now,
You get no second chance.

    existentialistic warning on the dear and fleeting nature of our fragile lives.

    '...Of all the hopes and dreams we have,
    That pass us by or others steal,
    Cos times not right for them...'
    Not exactly an original thought, but well penned and nicely personalized.

    You are so right. Just yesterday I was hollering, 'I am alone and miserable! ' While today I went to church with my son, then dinner with a friend and had a great time conversing, laughing, eating, and sipping some fine wine.

    Life is too short to do all the things we hope and dream to do. Too short to dwell on the negatives. Every day is another chance to make your dreams come true. Love Princess
