*Just needed to repost this today. Been thinking of my grandfather and his patriotism. He was my hero and loved this country more than anybody else I’ve ever known. He gave me my love for the United States of America and taught me to never say an ill word about our country. I love you so much grandpa. You were a rare gem in this world and will never be forgotten by me and all who knew you. May you rest in peace today and always.
Every day I realize More and more what I have It isn’t my belongings, dusty on shelves It isn’t the things I’ve accomplished Or even the things I’ve mastered But instead, It’s the people And the experiences The beauty of life itself These are the things that matter The things that are worth loving The things I want to fight for I hope I never lose sight Of the true treasures of life
Time each of us holds it from birth. We’re all entrusted with the same daily allowance but not all know its value and some seem to forget its worth.
The foolish tend to use it up leaving all those leftover seconds to rot on silver platters squandering hours away on useless, selfish desires believing they’ll always have more never realizing there is a limit.
And yet the wise and the perceptive they protect time with their very lives savoring every last crumb knowing it is a measured blessing to be cherished. They realize time is meant to be held in a way, which embraces even the tiniest bits of joy. And those who are discerning understand the merit of its potential. For time truly is the most valuable gift of all.
Lack of love Hurts my heart Why can’t people Ever be smart Can’t they see What they’re missing Love is more Than just kissing With genuine love Souls connect Hearts entwine There’s no neglect Is it so hard To love this way This is all I have left to say
Dismal days Are all the craze Everyone’s living In a haze Could this be Just a phase Or are we stuck In a repeating maze Look at the way People gaze So many lost In a doleful daze Will we ever find Those hopeful rays Or stay prisoners of Depressive waves Can we all give Encouraging praise Or will morosity Be what stays Everyone has a choice To change their ways Kindness has always Been what pays Can you share Your love full blaze There really isn’t time For delays
