As we travel down lifes highways in our fast and carefree pace
with little thought of anything else except lifes merry chase.
We pass so many wonderous things as we hurry to and fro
some rare and precious treasures, but how are we to know?
We trek across the stage of life with script that we rehearse
undmindful in our folly that life has no reverse.
You can't go back to yesterday and still expect to find
those rare and precious treasures that you have left behind.
So stop long enough to gather the gems of life today
and hold them ever to your heart lest they forever slip away.
Sing to your child a lullaby, love and play with it on the floor
for all too soon the day will come and you'll have a child no more.
Take time to say "I love you" and lend a helping hand
and sow your seeds of kindness as you travel through this land.
You can't go back, no matter how much effort you disburse
but live with a wistfull memory,
because life has no reverse.
