Nothing Matters Anymore

Updated on June 28, 2013

It once mattered

But now it doesn’t matter anymore

Life was meant for enjoying

For living each day

Leaving all fear behind

Trusting in the Lord above

And knowing that someday

You’ll be swinging on a star

Beside the Lord

In the fields of Heaven

So while you can

Live each day

And give yourself a chance

To enjoy all that the world has to give

There is not only bad

There is a lot of good too

And this world

Was meant to be admired

Take a look at the sun above

And nature which surrounds you

Believe in the love of the Lord

And pray every day

It will take away the fears and tears

You may have

And give you the strength to on

Because every day

You can find some beauty

In living day to day

Every day there is something

To make you smile

So embrace this life

You’ve been given

And know that it will thrive and grow

And you’ll walk through it

With grace and ease

Spread your arms

And dance with joy

Sing with the birds

That fly above

Let love take you to a higher level

Love as if it was the first time

And let passion overtake your heart

Laugh with your family and friends

Never be sad when

The angels come

To take friends away

We all will meet again someday

So if it mattered once

It doesn’t matter anymore

Fall will still be followed by winter

And spring will make way for the summer

Let it matter no more

      What can I say? I believe this to be the truth too, and this is beautifully presented.

      I think I like this so much, is because I'm not a very spiritual person, but this makes me feel spiritual in a unique way. Very beautiful.

      Yes, very positive words much needed for me today. Sometimes we get so busy and stressed with life's problems that we forget to enjoy our lives and appreciate the goodness that is all around us.

      Good evening gypsy-rose-lee.

      Inspirational. When we allow good things to rule our lives , the life is beautiful. Contentment carries days with joy overcoming obstacles . Accepting yesterday's lessons, making the best of given chance today , not allowing hope to be ruined -- we live portion of eternity...

      Voted up and awesome .
