NOTHING BETTER

coelho-zahir

What do you want?
What do you want to do?
The clock is ticking,
flicking second off as if
stuck to the fingers
on their precise hands.
Time is fleeting. It is
meeting your deadline before
your time is through.
Enjoy your life, real
or imagined. Planned
or unscripted, uplifted to
the heavens, an offering.
Speak the words you were meant
to say. Love the ones who mean
the most to your existence.
Do not put distance between
any (wo)man and yourself.
Love your (grand)children.
Give of your time, of yourself.
Celebrate your every day!
Do all you can to enhance your life.
And realize there’s nothing better!

(C) Walter J. Wojtanik – 2017
