Make Each Moment Count

Moments build into memories encapsulated in time

Always forming and shaping our heart and our mind

Keeping us warm as we journey back

Eyes are our witness to life’s good and bad


Let go the anger which can twist your insides

Open your heart to life’s wondrous surprise

Vast is your knowledge as you become wise

Every moment you live is a moment to shine

    Hi LG, really enjoyed this, I like the picture you chose as well, "Let go of the anger which can twist your insides" is a great line, Each line spelling out make love was Really clever as well. Great writing.

      hi penny , i love this tho for some reason this one makes me want to cry .. says more about me and my life tho , then your poem lol,

      this line really made me think

      Keeping us warm as we journey back

      more about my own life, to be honest with you , and how when i look back , all i seem to feel is upset and all i can seem to see is too much pain ..

      your poem was lovely tho , just a shame some of us dont have too many '' warm '' memories.. xx

        Writing myself a message here really Charlotte. Telling myself what I already know I need to do. Let go and love myself more

        Can be easier said than done

        Hugs to you Charlotte ❤️

                A beautiful acrostic poem!
                You have shared a beautiful
                message! Words well chosen to convey your message...especially, “Eyes are our witness to life’s good and bad”...
                If we can discern between the two, we can make a difference!

                        This poem is so good, I had to make it a favorite!
                        I am also going to print it out and hang it on the wall in my office. I do want to read it over and over again. All the lines are good, but I really love that second stanza. Am not so sure though about 'becoming wise'.

                        • LittleGift

                          Fred I am delighted you love this to the point you want to print it out and hang it in your office. I don’t think a compliment can get much better than that. I am thrilled you love it and thanks so much for reading my poem

                          Have a very HAPPY Sunday

                          LG 😊 x
