time span

as a child Christmas seemed to take forever
now it comes around again far too quickly

time is relative but few live to one hundred
value each moment, beware it’s not plundered

tick off my bucket list, ensure I do it all
for time and way is unknown for my exit call

once prepared I can live life at ease
nobody and nothing left to appease

resided in the outback, mountains and coast
breath deeply, enjoy nature and my WP post

keep company that I value the most
don’t waste time with those who roast

fulfil my dreams and goals to boast
that I lived life fully to my utmost

  1. Each day as though it’s our last, because someday it will be, whether we’re 23 or 113 at the time.

    As mentioned before, though, the goodness and civilization we create grants a measure of immortality, just we benefit from the reserves built, in some cases, millennia ago. It’s a tapestry, and we weave it in anonymous glory.
