Time Was When
By Don Ray Williams
December 6, 2008
I’m sure the day will come, when you’ll look back.
And wonder where the time has gone, cause you just lost track.
So many things you meant to do, were put off for another day,
And while those tasks lay waiting, the time silently slipped away.
It is always easy to say, “I really intended to …”,
But it is more difficult to just get up and to begin to DO.
Some things you should not put off, not even for a day.
Some things are tasks and some merely things you need to say.
Have you told all of your friends, what they add to each day of your life?
Have you expressed your love to sons and daughters or to your husband or your wife?
Have you given thanks for your health and the food that you have to eat?
Have your given thanks for having a roof over your head and a soft bed in which to sleep?
So many things we take for granted. So many people too.
So while it is on your mind, remember the things that you need to DO.
Buy a card that says you care, or call them on the phone.
Everyone can use a friendly word, especially if they are all alone.
And don’t forget the Man above. He would appreciate a little thanks too.
Now is the time to tell them all, so just get up and DO.
