The Precious Gift of Time

What a precious gift is time!

Each moment is a jewel upon the sea,

borne up for one bright moment by the foam

then gone, seen henceforth but in memory.

The number of our days on earth is fixed,

the time allotted for the journey home.

How beautifully they shine, those days!

See them dancing there upon the waves

as with the tide they come, then go.
