Embrace the Day
earth are as
fleeting as a
shadow. Try as we
might to hold onto them
They slip through our fingers like
hourglass sand and we grow old. Our
memories fade, sight grows dim, names and
faces escape our grasp. Every day we
struggle to maintain our dignity. Steps
grow slower, hearts grow weaker as time
takes its toll. Too soon death will come
calling and snatch us away.
But until that day we
live, we breathe, we love.
Every day is a
gift from God.
