My grandma wanted me to put one of her poems on the site to see how you guys like it....Enjoy! :)

Life

Oh, how quickly life goes by
You take a look and blink your eyes
And half your life has passed you by!
A little nap along the way to help
You make it through the day
And when you wake and stretch
And yawn, three quarters of your
Life is gone.

Before you know it you've breathed
Your last and your life is
In the past.

But, now your true life has just begun
For now you're back where you
Came from

Back with God-The Mother, the Father,
and the Son
Back to where time won't slip away
To make you tired and old and gray
But to the place of Joy and delight
A place filled with eternal light.

    tantalisingly true, this poem is such a reminder to push the limits and enjoy life for what it is.

    Both my grand parents died before I was born, And never had there support like you had! She is so right though, That's one of the best one I have heard so far. Very touching.=)
