Tenuous

Keith Jeffries

Tenuous

 

We know not the hour nor the day,

the voice of wisdom does readily say.

Our allotted time be it short or long is tenuous,

but not without a sense of some purpose.

 

Our earthly pilgrimage is one of a transient nature,

for there is nothing that is permanent for sure.

Like a summer's breeze through the trees,

it comes and goes with only itself to please.

 

whilst here amidst joy, trial and sadness,

we should strive to do well and be a success.

To be loving, generous and forever kind,

before the day when we shall be resigned.

 

We may never see old age or die young,

with a life that remains unsung.

Whatever our destiny we can be assured,

that all will be well if we have loved and persevered.

    No matter what. It seems to say don’t hide emotion and take the present as precious as the future is not assured. I like it
