One Life To Live!

One Life To Live!


My old teacher Brother Leo once signed my autograph with these words: “I shall pass this way but once, any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show, let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.” How very true & memorable! I have not forgotten since.


FootprintsFootprints in the sands of time . . . will be washed away with the waves.



We have but one life to live

Leave a legacy that others can see

Fill our lives with dreams and vision

Then strive on with the mission.


Making money is not the only considerations

Come it will beyond your imagination

Chasing after it is not the game

To be chased by it is no shame.


Money finding you is much easier

You finding it is crazier

The most precious thing in life

Is doing the things you like!


Procrastination will always be

If it is to be it’s up to me!

Soon Mother Time will pass us by

Setting aside time is being wise.


We all have twenty-four hours to live

Many of us just don’t give

The time to do what’s count

To leave a legacy that’s sound!
