The small miracles that happen, a moment’s laughter shared;
A thought understood, a knowing eye brought to bare.
To hold another’s hand, and to be there for a while;
With a peaceful silence lived, telling more that you care.
It won’t last forever, this fleeting chance we call life;
If that slender string be cut, or left a smouldering wick.
And a sum of moments cherished, will be all that we retain;
As the elders will tell us, it’s all over too quick.
So carpe diem my friend, make the most of your fate
Live your life to the full, before its too late.
