A Gift

Written by: Anne Rutherford

                                                   Life is so very special,
                                                    don't throw it away.

                                              Savour it, with happy wonderful
                                                times, with family and friends.

                                              No wasting this gift we are given,
                                              even if hard or painful times come
                                                                your way.
                                              Wake up each morning and say,
                                                       a new day is here.

                                               Put a smile on when you greet 
                                               the mirror, and leave it on all day.

                                                      Life is so very special, 
                                                       don't throw it away.

                                               Spend it like there is no tomorrow,
                                                  Because tomorrow might not,
                                                            come your way.
