Sands of Time

The sands of time like deserts wide

keep holding on – no rewind.

Spread across eternity

the future holds uncertainty.

Embrace your “now”…that’s all there is

refuse it though and cease to live.

Stop holding back your destiny

grab hold this day and be set free.

Live with your heart – embrace your core

one small step then reach for more.

Our thoughts create our destiny

Trust and Believe – then you will see.

It takes some Faith and Patience too

but then rewards will come to you.

Faith is not something you see

Believe it First so it can be.

The eyes can see the shallow plains

but with the heart see what remains.

This life we know is just a blink

It’s not as serious as you may think.

Live each day like it’s your last

It’s what’s here now…don’t look back.
