Last Day

Some days do not stick
Choosing to slide right by
And time so valuable
Is lost in a haze of regret
For what is of value
If not time
So fundamental to all our endeavours.
I asked,
Some said money
Some said friends
Some said peace
So I answered “But all need time”
Time to make
Time to be
Time to appreciate
And once spent it cannot be regained
Unlike so much that people value
Thus I counsel myself
Use time wisely and do not squander
Consider all you do and calculate the cost
Less distraction robs
What use wealth, friend or peace
If this is my last day?
