by David Johnson
Our lives are but a flash of light
Mere grains of sand on a well-worn shore
A faint glimmer in the dark of night
A faint sparkle in the light of day
As tentatively we find our way
By the grace of God our souls survive; forever to return
To blunder forward in the night
If you could live your life again
What would you do different?
Would I be in your waking dreams?
Would you bear children,
craft a cure, and benefit your fellow man?
And live your life pristine and pure
Or would you risk it all each day
And live life on its ragged edge
Without regard to consequences
Regret not – the life you’ve led
Drink deeply of its flavor
