“ While I’m Alive ” ~ teach me now ~

Teach me now

While I’m alive,

To not forget,

When I arrive

At regret’s bide,

And must endure

Spent recollect

Of someone near,

Plus fail to hear

Suffered upset,

While I now limbo

In the unclear,

Of telling ways

By one so dear

Who loved me when,

Wouldst hold until

I am no longer,

And even then!

“ The Gift Of A Day ” ~ tells of being alive ~

Yesterday

Be a kind of guide

Told of being alive…

 

Today

Fate made to give,

That I derive

The gift of a day,

An extended stay

Held staying alive…

 

Tomorrow

Will be

If I survive,

So I’ve no mind

And far less time

For such concern,

That mayn’t arrive…

 

Thus the morrows

I’ll choose each so,

As tho a lifetime                                            

That I’ve yet to live !
