Life is a Brief Journey

Life is a brief journey…don't waste time agonizing over
things and people that are no longer with us.
They have lived their lives and if you are not careful,
you will allow them to unknowingly
steal your life away in sadness and remorse.
Think of them often…love them forever!…but be
resolved about their leaving
for all the wishes and praying in the world will
not return them to your life. Don't beat yourself
up about what you think they would think,
if they knew what you were doing today.
Be aware of the people around you, and the new ones
that may come into your life, Who may offer you once
again the human necessities of love, happiness and joy.
For time is a thief, and waiting for tomorrow to start
you life over, you may make the sad discover…
that tomorrow never really comes!
