Poetry – 28 April 2017


Final Day

 Sometimes when in your mind

You stop to contemplate

The things which you might do

Upon that last and final date


Do you think to forgive your debtors

That you will try to make amends

Would you strive to right some wrongs

And remember all your friends


And have you stopped to think how great

That this would make your life

By increasing other people’s joys

And eliminating strife


Is it then so hard to realize

That you mustn’t wait until that day

But begin now to live your life

In this wondrous and beautiful way

Ephraim J. Stockwell
