Time is Short

There is little I ask, my wants are few
So don’t go holding your breath until you’re blue

No time for tantrums
Cause time is short
You must enjoy life
Before it leaves port

We work all day and our nights are for fun
Sometimes it’s just hard to get everything done

No time for tantrums
Cause time is short
Don’t give into strife
Just join in the sport

One can’t always live life to the letter
Mistakes will happen, lessons learned
Complaining doesn’t always make it better
Forging through makes future moments well earned

No time for tantrums
Cause time is short
Death cuts like a knife
It’s not a tropical resort

No time for tantrums should be everyone's way of life. It would make a good bumper sticker too.

Isn't that the truth too. Got to live each day as if it is our last and make every moment count as a good one. A very nice read!
