   Life's fleeting moments drain like the sand 
  in the hourglass. You'll never know how fast
       precious, irreplaceable moments fade.
              They aren't white elephants...
             so don't let them go to waste!
         The birth and first walk of your child
            Your wedding day, your first kiss,
              yes, even that first heartbreak!

     Watching the sunset by the edge of the sea
      with the one you love. Foxtroting beneath 
the quarter moon, walks among the fields of gold

      Moments like these, no hand can ever hold
    Unadulteratedly revel in them while they last;
             make every second last and count
            They can't be anchored still by time

          They're lost to the wind like a feather 
  between the blink of an eye. So seize and bottle 
      each fleeting moment as they come and go, 
                 for they'll soon be a memory...

            and the mind can't contain them all!
