What is the purpose, why am I here,
What really matters, what do I hold dear?
Sometimes life is clouded, the important brushed aside,
Walking blind though the day, we watch years quickly glide.
We do the same things, day in and day out,
With no more than a thought, without even a doubt.
We waste our time thinking of the things of this earth,
And don’t understand they hold nothing of worth.
We forget what we’re here for, confused with obsessions,
Distracted with life, and all of its attractions.
The only thing lasting, the souls He can save,
The life that continues even after the grave.
Yesterday’s gone, only memories left,
Will any part of it last beyond moths rust and theft?
Tomorrow’s not promised, so live every day
In a loving and kind and forgiving way.
This day we’ve been given from our father above,
We have this one chance to live life with love.
Do your best to make the most of every opportunity,
So you have no regrets, work together in unity.
