Life - poem

Life

Life is such a fleeing thing
So fast life slips away

One moment the sun shines
The next thing you know
The moment is lost in time.

Life is such a short journey
Shorter for some than others
As life slips away, we find.

One moment you are holding
A loved one in your arms
The next moment touching
The loved one only with your
Heart.

Life is such a wondrous thing
Filled with so much hope for
Tomorrow
Yet, for so many, filled with so
Much sorrow.

I was born and raised wearing hand me down shoes and clothes-but I was richer by far than those who thought themselves 'my betters.'  I'd take love over riches and fame any day.
