Poem: Time enough?

Charles Osgood with thoughts on life and the passing of time:


Man is mortal, this is true.
And that applies to women, too.

To each of us, to those we love,
And to our dearest friends,
At some point human life begins
And at some point it ends.

We don't know when. Life is dispensed
In differing amounts.
But it is not how LONG we lived --
It's HOW we lived that counts.

Death, like life, is natural,
And not to be afraid of.
If you love life, guard well your time --
For time's the stuff life's made of.
