Life Is A Fragile Thing
by Louise Carron Harris
Life is a fragile thing,
And it can change within an instant.
Nothing is safe from the effects of change,
No person or possession we’re given
The only things we can hold forever,
Are the memories in our hearts.
The loves we share upon this earth
Before it comes our time to part
So choose a pathway that brings you joy.
Take time for quiet moments each day.
Appreciate the challenges that strengthen your soul,
And the blessings the Universe sends your way
Don’t let your heart be ruled by anger,
It’s just not worth the stress.
For the tumult will only expand in your heart,
And crowd out happiness
Live each day with wonder and gratitude
For the beauty that surrounds you.
And share your abundance generously
It’ll ensure future blessings will surround you
Meekly accept that life’s journey will include
Unexpected, soul-wrenching heartaches,
That will bruise your soul, and alter the course
You always imagined your life would take
And when that happens you will have the choice,
To embrace hope or hopelessness.
You can’t avoid grief, but you can refuse to accept
A lonely future of bitterness
So choose to be grateful for each moment
With the loved ones you’ve been given.
