Blessed with Life

Tick, tock!

The clock starts ticking
We’re born, we live and we die
Each of following our chosen path
Until our time is nigh

Tick, tock!

We have the power within ourselves
To choose which path to take
And to guide us, a guardian Angel
To help us learn from our mistakes

Tick, tock!

Experts say we’ve a life expectancy
How can they truly know?
Or are they just predicting?
When it’s our time to go!

Tick, tock!

How we live our lives
Is somewhat set in stone
But still we have free will
To make our lives our own

Tick, tock!

Childhood years is when
Our spirit starts to grow
Our minds are free and open
So much we yearn to know

Tick, tock!

As time goes by, outside influences
Begin to warp our minds
Some of us can get back on track
Others fall far behind

Tick, tock!

Those unfortunate souls that lose their way
Most will eventually get back on track
Sadly though, some never learn
Therefore, find they cannot get back

Tick, tock!

None of us know, when ‘our time’ will come
So let us live our lives for the best
Cherish each day as if it’s the last
For each of us has been blessed
