Love The Essence Of Life......A Philosophy - Poem by Jim Harmon

Life is of essence to me so dear.
Today I must live and tomorrow not fear.
For if I live my life with the fullest intent
Then tomorrow will bring joy as a day well spent.

The quality of life to each individual
Is what he makes it unless he dwindles
For the most out of life comes from time well spent
As the days on our calendar of life are extent.

If I live today like tomorrow won't come
And make out of life the most joyous of fun
Then if I can live for just one more day
The time that I've spent has not crept away.

So to my fellow philosophers
Who live to love life,
Let not it be said I've loved once or twice
For I'll live my life as I see fit
and from the loves that I'll live in life
I'll be well spent.
