Better To Try And Fail Than Never To Try At All

Poem By William F. O'Brien

Some say risk nothing, try only for the sure thing,
Others say nothing gambled nothing gained,
Go all out for your dream.
Life can be lived either way, but for me,
I'd rather try and fail, than never try at all, you see.

Some say "Don't ever fall in love,
Play the game of life wide open,
Burn your candle at both ends."
But I say "No! It's better to have loved and lost,
Than never to have loved at all, my friend."

When many moons have gone by,
And you are alone with your dreams of yesteryear,
All your memories will bring you cheer.
You'll be satisfied, succeed or fail, win or lose,
Knowing the right path you did choose.

Oh Lord Tell Me Why

When the burdens seem like mountains,
When the troubles have no end,
When the tears flow like fountains,
When our hearts we cannot mend.

What Makes Life Worth Living

What makes life worth while?
What makes life worth living?
The answer is ---- Only our sharing
And our giving!
