Don’t Take Life For Granted

Saddened by a few pieces of personal news this week…

Words flow from strange places…

Life, it has no permanence
Life gives no guarantees
So we should live it fully
And do the things that please

Life, a gift bestowed on us
Like a seed, once planted
Water it, nurture it, help it grow
Don;t take life for granted
