The clock on the wall doesn’t speak but “tells,”
That life is passing, so remember this well!
The reflection of memories and “flash backs are great;
So now to the future, one can’t hesitate!
The hands on the wall keep moving along;
One must smile, accept and remain very strong.
Ties to family and friends will forever be treasured;
There lies our happiness; now and forever.
It’s life’s game, all must play, so learn it now;
“Mistakes” or “Fumbles” one cannot allow.
With steps leading forward – walk brave, tall and slow;
Your own heart must guide you wherever you go.
The sun will greet you, forget the dark night’
Trust the clock to “take you to tomorrow’s light.”
