Life Goes On…

Life is full of disappointments and numerous moments of feeling that you want to just sleep and forget the goings-on, but suddenly the cloud cover is lifted and the sun shines warmly on our lives. I think it pays to understand that the sun cannot shine for you for ever. Unless the rain clouds bring the rain and the snow, earth cannot prepare itself for a hot summer.



Step by step
On the white chalk line
Walk on, sojourner!
Life moves on
And waits for none,
No time to linger
With regrets in the heart,
No time to ponder
On words said harsh.

Along the way
A hand is held
With promise pledged
Sealed and taken,
No time to linger
With regrets in the heart,
No time to ponder
On words said harsh.

Close bonds may grate
And repair a must,
All things need fixing
For friction wears,
No time to linger
With regrets in the heart,
No time to ponder
On words said harsh.

The seeds well sown
Have borne the fruit,
Sit back, unwind!
Kind wind, fill the sail
On smooth satin waters
To the horizon sail!

No time to linger
On life lived well
No time to ponder
On life after death!

So true...

Close bonds may grate
And repair a must,
All things need fixing
For friction wears,

Most of us forget to repair our bonds once they are broken. Life is too short...live it to the full.
