The Sands of Time

The sands of time like deserts wide,

keep moving 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 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.
