Advice to you

Jennifer DeLong 1973 (Marysville)

The way we move
through
life
The time we
loose
Going here
Going there
Stressing this or that
Why can't we see
the time we
loose
why don't we realize
it
before it's
to late
I would have spent it
enjoying and spending
time with those , I hold most
dear
Loving and Laughing
The way we move through
life
On auto
fast forwarding
going by so fast
are the hours & mins
we loose
so slow down
and move through
it slowly and make
the most of the time
you got now
that's my advice
to you
