Precious Moments

Rating: 5.0

Time waits for no one like the flower that will soon fade away
Spend some moments with loved ones before the end of the day
Have a long talk with friends and chat about the good old times
Pick up a book and read to a child or sing some nursery rhymes

Precious moments just like a vapor will soon begin to disappear
Days and weeks will be no more then will lead to a brand new year
The time you have will pass away so visit the ones you hold dear
Stay in touch with family and friends whether they live far or near

Opportunities passed along the way can not be recovered again

Wisdom at its best, your words are heard deeply by me and I hope they touch an abundance of people. Life is so short, I'm so happy you wrote this poem Patricia.....

I love the sentiment but I don't think the first stanza fits together with the other three. I think the first stanza would be better as another poem perhaps dealing more with children. However the rest of the stanzas fit very well together and are just wonderful. great write.
