May we treat each day and each other as we treat those most precious to us...
(like 10 mo. old grandbabies:)
I would be careful if I was you
and you should be careful if you was me
Because we are always caught between
What was and what still waits to be
...and what still waits to be who knows?
Then we should both be careful; why?
Because we never know when love
Or life insists upon 'good-bye'
So much happens every day to remind us of how ephemeral 'This' is!
