Starting Right Now

It's hard for me to believe

How fast my life is passing by

Until I think about past happenings

Some made me laugh, other's made me cry.

It's easier for me to recall good times

Than to recall those times that were sad

But strangely when I think about it

Most of my sad times weren't so bad.

The things I've learned from my mistakes

Have increased my wisdom like a growing rose

My learning to accept the good, bad and ugly

Has helped me to grow I suppose.

Time I have left I'm grateful for

I'll use it to improve myself everyday

Maybe that's the reason God gave me life

And his trust I'll do my best not to betray.

Beginning right now.....
