A Message in the Sands (Inspirational poetry)

Updated on January 25, 2015
Our days, as by the sands of time...
Our days, as by the sands of time...
Every minute of every hour is such a gift...
Every minute of every hour is such a gift...
As surly as the night does follow the day..
As surly as the night does follow the day..
We must treasure each day as our last...
We must treasure each day as our last...
Our purist most heartfelt devotion, as we pray...
Our purist most heartfelt devotion, as we pray...



What life has to teach each one on this earth,

To be written in the sands of time, of our worth.

The humble, as the strong, creatures all belong,

Whether goodness to give, those right or wrong.


Our time, if so well spent, in our fond thankfulness,

Lives, each preserved, by our best thoughtfulness.

As on the beach's sands, we all do walk, in kind,

While being good stewards, having peace of mind.


What each morrow may bring, of its joys we may sing,

Not to matter the outcome, let our voices, all to ring.

When we stand together, we are an awesome force,

All a product of our maker, on a positive course.


As through the hourglass, each fine granule flows,

A warming sun to bathe us each, in daylight, glows.

As we fulfill our roles, that one, with a helping hand,

In steady movement, sands of time, we understand.


Our lives daily to move. so purely, as by the sands of time,

Each one passes through the hour glass, a mystery, a rhyme,

We must value every precious hour, a gift of great magnitude,

Our giver, the grand creator of us all, deserves our gratitude.

A peaceful sleep to follow the day...
