Precious moments just come and go,
Just disappear before you know.
Time elapses in a blink of an eye,
Moments to laugh, reasons to cry.
Every life has highs and some lows,
Life's emotions like a river flows.
Beautiful memories from the past,
Always cherished, will forever last.
The hands of time just cannot be halted,
What comes along may not be altered,
Ultimately out of our control,
Whatever the future happens to hold.
Seize every opportunity, that comes along,
Savour the moment before it is gone.
To live or die is a mighty Fine line,
Do not waste a single second in time.
