Time is Precious
Never let your days be all about tomorrow’s dreams,
for one day you’ll realize your past is an illusion.
Open your eyes, savor the little moments each day.
When time has passed, when your years are limited,
when a loved one is gone, the little moments
are the treasure for which you endlessly search.
Each dive taken into your memories underscores
how much you missed setting little moments aside
Finally, you realize what “time is precious” means.
It’s not about rushing to get things accomplished
or reaching the apogee of your life before it’s too late.
Time is precious because when you live your life
in the moment, you are creating a life well-lived,
a life full of moments to treasure when time is short,
a life not prepared for a prodigious biography,
but a life of living and loving every moment to its fullest.
