By each second lived

By the minute

By the hour

By day

By night

By the week

By month

By year.

Life is for living

For giving


For sharing

For caring

For loving

Not loving

Circumstances change?

Life is

All encompassing

All toghetherness

All embracing

Life is

Too short

Too long?

Life is

A precious gift

Live it well.
