Time is fleeting
"Our Time On Earth" by jaybird1
Our time on earth is only lent,
it's not ours to buy or borrow.
We'll never know when time is spent,
will we have a new tomorrow?

Important is we spend it well,
never dwelling on doubts or fear.
Don't live your life where these things dwell,
just live where peace and joy appear.

Compassion for your fellowman,
presents a pleasing way to go.
Show all your friends you understand,
all the troubles that they must know.

To live this caring, sharing way,
with friends and neighbors that you meet;
Will brighten, lighten up your day-
Do this and give yourself a treat.



Author Notes
Our time on earth is often brief and it would behoove
us to use it well. We gain in the end-Jaybird
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
