Life is Never Nil
I heard the autumn winds this morning;
I know what is to come.
I cannot halt the tides of life;
I calculate the sum.
There is no hiding place to find;
There is no turning back.
There is no changing lane this time;
There is no fade to black.
My heart is aching overtime;
My mind’s real limits found.
My spirit limps along this path;
My eyes my tears surround.
What will become of sorrow now?
What more can heartache do?
What can I find to ease this ache?
What will I say to you?
Life has only just begun;
Life is growing still.
Life won’t end before its time.
Life is never nil.

A life lived to the full, that’s never lost.
Agreed! Life is definitely more about quality than quantity, While we live, we can share our lives with others, but even when we must relinquish our lives, if we have lived well, what is most significant about our lives usually has nothing to do with physiology of the body or the psychology of the brain. What defines us today came to us, in part, as a result of what our ancestors could manage to instill in their next generation.
What truly matters in life is who we are NOW, because that’s what will move our children and grandchildren to either embrace or discard. Either way, the echoes reverberate through time.
