The first twenty years of living this life, seemed like such a drag!

I couldn’t wait for each day to be over…Life made me just want to gag!

The next twenty years, were full of emptiness and pain.  Each day seemed wasted… all lost, nothing gained.

These last twenty years have been wonderful for me!  I found forgiveness in God… I’ve learned to be free!

That’s sixty years total, and only one-third of it enjoyed!  Too bad the rest was unfruitful and void.

Each moment that passes, is gone for good, but when I was younger, I never understood,

That seconds and minutes can’t be recalled…that TIME waits for no one, it can’t be halted, or stalled.

Each moment is precious, it can’t be replaced.  Will you be happy today, with the choices you made?

There is power in each moment…use them wisely and you’ll see

God smiling at you, throughout eternity!
