A life well lived

 

Survive a day, 

 

Live the night, 

 

Life can be long,

 

not merely a flight.

 

 

Yet,

 

Lives can hold,

 

with strength regained,

 

and faith is renewed,

 

our hopes remain.

 

 

Guard the hour, 

 

Guard the flight,

 

Guard the wings,

 

Guard the life,

 

to never despair

 

in face of deathly night,

 

but strike the match

 

and behold- there is light!
