Time Is Fleeting!

  • Time is fleeting!
    • It slips thru my fingers,
    • Faster than water.
  • Nothing can prevent its passing.
    • Have I used my moments
    • On this earth wisely?
  • I want to come
    • To the end of my life
    • And be able to exclaim
    • Emphatically “Yes!”
  • I sometimes feel ,
    • As though I walk,
    • On razors edge,
  • Between being a fool,
    • And a genius.
    • Time is fleeting
  • Yes, I acknowledge
    • There are times that
    • I am crazy and sane.
  • As time slips by no more,
    • Those remaining will say,
    • “He helped others.”

  • Life brings the reality I wanted to be remembered as father, grandfather, ancestor.  Also as someone who used the time upon this earth wisely.  Then, I realized I learned a lot from mistakes and having to fix them. Acknowledging mistakes and learning from the experience is an important part of maturing and growing older.   I would not go back in time and relive my life to change the mistakes. That would change who I am today.  
  • I humbly apologize for all my mis-adventures.   Especially if it has hurt someone or something. 
  • I have decided I want to be remembered simply as “He helped others.”

Thank You!

  • Thank You!
    • I am whole, limbs, body, and mind.
    • I am nourished, body, mind, and spirit.
  • Thank you.
    • They are so many less fortunate.
    • They also express their appreciation.
  • Thank you.
    • Life has disasters and delights.
    • These are important moments.
  • Thank you.
    • Even the bad and good times are
    • Critical learning minutes,days or years.
  • Thank you!
    • You are with us, always.
    • You are the Nurturer!
  • Thank you!

  • I was seeing friends being laid off,  injured in  automobile accidents, and  neighbors afflicted with physical and mental diseases.   I realized just how lucky I was.  When things got bad.  I would remind myself with:  “I could be in Bangladesh.” or ” I could be living in xxxxx..”  xxxx representing any place where there was a disaster or people in extreme stress.   I want to live a life of thankfulness.  Now you know where my user id came from;  icare2be.
