The River Of Life Flows By Poem

This poem is about living life to its fullest measure.

Enjoying life while we still can.

I hope you enjoy it.

Please watch my video

The river of life flows by, before we can blink an eye.

We are here for awhile, than we die.

So make the most of your precious time, before the river of life flows by.

Make decisions now and right, don’t think twice.

Remember this is your life make the most of it each and every day.

Don’t let it slip away.

The river of life, this is your time, make the most of it.

Don’t never ever quit.

Never give up on your dreams, never run out of steam.

You can do this life, just get to it.

I totally agree life is fleeting and passes us by quicker than the blink of an eye. Great video and you gave me time for pause and reflection and knowing that I don't have much time, so I must make the best of it and help humanity and our planet survive a little bit longer underneath a brighter sky. Peace my friend. I rate this Up..very inspirational indeed.
