The Life Raft - Poem by Robert Edgar Burns

I hope the sun will start shining,
Again for you real soon.
Of this thing I am certain.
It will come from behind of the moon.

It’s been said that in every persons life
A little rain shower must fall.
But in all life as it is in nature,
The sun will evaporate it all.

What is our life but a vapor?
In a moment it vanishes away!
I guess we are the living dying,
From the moment of birth some will say!

Each tick of the clock brings us closer,
One second less have all of we.
Don’t forget to plan for your future,
But especially for Eternity!

If flood waters should ever sweep you,
Don’t panic just please remain calm.
And swim right toward the life raft,
That‘s been here beside you all along.
