Excerpt from Poems of Purpose
To be lost! No, to live and keep sacred Each impression of spirit and soul, Till the ages have all been forgotten, And the lengths of eternity roll.
We should treasure these God-given moments They are jewels more precious than gold, That are ours to fashion and polish, That are heaven's to have and to hold. We can never recall the departed, Be they moments or hours or years, Tho we, sitting in sackcloth and ashes, Would baptize even hope with our tears.
