Florida's Foreverly Shores
Once Upon A Rhyme
In a faraway kingdom by the sea
a mysterious thing happened to me.
A vision so rare it left me bereft,
clinging to life on bended knee, I wept.
Lying before me in a wondrous state,
the beauty of life like a thief of late.
Never before did I happen to see
the beauty of life staring back at me.
At my wits end, coming to understand
the sum total of life lay in my hands.
A vision so bold it caused me to see
life is what I make of little o' me.
So completely it occurred in a flash
the reason in my life for one last dash.
Ever mindful of life's circumstance met,
what I am tomorrow is not told yet.
Always reminded of the treasures held
in the palm of my hand, I know them well.
Living and loving each day I am blessed.
When God calls my name, I have passed the test.
God, the puppeteer, I the puppet played
He holds the strings to the life I have made.
