Of Life We Only Have A Temporary Lease - Poem by Francis Duggan

Of life we only have a temporary lease
And of what time I have left I just wish to live in peace
And hang on to life for as long as I can
And die in my sleep as a very old man
As on our great journey through life we do go
We do make some friends and few without a foe
I only wish now for to live and let live
And any perceived wrongs against me I wish to forgive
The clock on my life it is ticking on fast
And all I can do now is to learn from the past
Of any successes in my life I do not have to tell
And all I can do now is to wish others well
And from now on make the most of every day
For the clock on my life it is ticking away.
