â€œâ€¦long, long ago, a man much older and wiser than I
told me when I reach that point in my life
when there was more of it behind me than ahead of me,
life and living would take on a much different meaning.
In the mornings I will give thanks that I am still here to wake,
during each day waste much less of the precious time I have left,
and each evening give silent thanks
for this one day and the beauty of the sunset,
and humbly pray for the night to pass in peace,
that the morning will find me still here
to witness the glory of the rising of the sun, one more time.
And so indeed has it come to pass.
It is in the doing and being that living is done.
It is in the sharing and not in the keeping
that treasures have worth.
Life is not a rock by the wayside to cling to,
nor to carve in onesâ€™ own image,
life is a wide and wondrous road to travel,
it is a journey of discovery, best traveled shared,
and this road leads ever onward, never backward.
Life can only be understood backward
but must be lived forward.
I cannot retrace my steps, only remember them,
and carry no burdens upon my back
for all I truly need will I find as I go.
Peace in the evening, joy in the morning.
I must live today as it is, tomorrow will be as it will,
and let yesterday pass, for it is gone.
Trust in today, have faith in tomorrow,
remember yesterday, and then let it go.
I am a traveler between two eternities,
my road lies before my feet
and beckons me ever onward.
In my searching will I find peace,
in my labours will I find rest,
As I will travel this road but once,
let my journey be worthwhileâ€¦â€
