Time is of the essence

Time wasted cannot be regained, am going to make the most 
Of life while breathe, and time remain. Death is a 
 Subject blocked from the mind, I only pass
Through this life once and am going to enjoy, and make the most, 
And appreciate life more, while there is still time.

This morning I stood by my window, thinking on
A situation am in. I prayed to God and the topic came to mind, 
Time is of the essence and I must make a start. Now is the time, to do something important
with four special people so dear to my heart. 

Yesterday is gone and I will not see it again, I’ll do all in my power today.
Time is of the essence, and a precious commodity; I’ll let nothing, or no one
Deter me; I am determine so let it be. 

I'll spend quality time with my children, freinds and family too
I'll tell them that I love them, and show them I care. Time is a healer
and I'll have nothing but regrets, if I fail to do what matters most to me
now is the time, time is of the essence, and  I won't let it slip from my grasp.

    Time is so a "precious commodity", Abraham. Easy to let it slip through our fingers, but we can never pick it up to continue a process. A new day here, part of an ongoing process! Best wishes to you and yours, Mikki
