The Gift Of Life
and post notes and photos about your poem like Sandra Haight.
Oh, what a gift- our Life! Just stop and think;
each day that comes and goes slips quickly by.
Before we know it- gone in just a blink;
another follows to live well- apply.
Sometimes, a banked-on, steady gift it is-
lived to the fullest- or just splurged away.
With every breath should come a simple quiz;
how many more are left after today.
Accept each day with mind and heart as though
it is the only one left on our pile;
for, over time, those gifted days will flow
away unused- or labeled with a smile.
No expiration stamped on each Lifetime-
it passes on as silent as a mime.
