Life is Fragile

Life is fragile.

Yesterday is gone

Tomorrow is yet to be

Today is what we have

Life is fragile.

The Child from Then

I knew her once upon a time,
Some time ago, she comes to mind.
She was young, where has she been,
Could this be the child from then?
I saw the way she looked at me,
An aging woman for her to see.
Could it be I knew her when,
Could this be the child from then?

On Life’s Journey


On life’s Journey

there is grief

because we love

and we hope

because of faith

The Length of a Lifetime

In reading the obituaries: he was 85, she was 62, he was 43, she was 25, he was 22, she was nine and he never saw his first birthday. Every day, in every paper, the obituaries are there to read. They are a sober reminder of the shortness and uncertainty of this life we live. They are a record that someone lived.

Each one measures the length of a lifetime for the length varies, but the lifetime remains. Whether it is a day, a decade or a century, each one of us measures the length of a lifetime for it is our lifetime, our moment in time on this earth.

Till The Morning Light

Night brings a greater loneliness than I care to feel.

The memories of times past that can no longer be again.

Moments that seem so long ago, linger till the morning light.


Grieving can seem like an eternal night of loss. Yet, hold fast for the sun of tomorrow will shine  and you will once again smile as you remember.

weeping may endure for the night but joy comes in the morning
