Life is a GiftLife is a gift,
that one should cherish forever.
Through the times of good and bad;
one may have to weather.
Days may come of good;
of joyous, jovial times.
Singing, dancing, surrounded with light,
not a moment left behind.
Days may come of sorrow,
of heartache and forlorn.
Tragic events occurring in flame,
at times leaving us to mourn.
And as we bow to the grave,
we hold our heads in shame.
Thinking of the life that was lost;
and what it could've became.
Through life we travel,
Through the sands of time we sift.
And as we pass through each moment,
remember that the life god gave us is a gift.
