Life Lesson Poem

How Quicky Time And Life Pass By

My short poem is about how swiftly life passes by. Even the longest lived lives go by in a flash of time. It's just how it is. I hope this poem will help many to think and realize the swiftness of time in a way that also helps them to rethink every small thing of beauty in their lives here and now as a treasured blessing.

Very nice. So very true. When it's said that we are given a certain number of days, what can be said when someone dies, say at age 59.5, but then is resuscitated and is now 64? Oh, no doubt...

Brevity

Life's brevity, so bittersweet,
depends upon just one heartbeat.

Brief as dusk and swift as dawn,
twilight hour, has come and gone.

Like waves that kiss a sandy shore,
returning to the ocean floor,

and brilliant stars that streak the sky,
must bid the universe goodbye,

and so it is with you and I,
and so it is with you and I.

So, play in waves that kiss the shore.
Enjoy the twilight hours more,

and wish upon the stars that shine,
for only now is yours and mine,

and so it is with you and I
till this brief life we bid goodbye!

Very nice. So very true. When it's said that we are given a certain number of days, what can be said when someone dies, say at age 59.5, but then is resuscitated and is now 64? Oh, no doubt each day after being resuscitated has been a gift from God, but how? Why? I guess that would be like questioning God's plan for our lives, which we are not to do. I suppose just be thankful to God that He has given you more than only 59.5 years to enjoy and live your life.
