Life Is Short

So short is life, so full of meaning
So short is life, expressing ones feeling
Life is short even but a day
Lest one can live, love, laugh and play
Lest one can hear one's point of view
And ask for judgement in what we do.
To help one another when things go wrong
To steady those that are not strong
The world must be full of wondrous things
More beautiful than gold money and rings
The meanings of our lives
Are out of sight, life is short
In ones own endeavor
To put the things he wants together
To do all the things he wants to do
In this wondrous world
God's given you.

by E. E. O. Skinner
