Now Is The Time

This poem is so good at reminding us how each day is a blessing and how no matter the age or your season of life each day life isn't over until it is over. Growing older, retiring or making a big change in your life does not mean we should sit back and just wait for the day we die. We aren't just "putting in time", we should be spending our time making every moment count, no matter the circumstances.

Best Wishes / Poems / Retirement Poems / Now Is The Time

Some talk of happy days gone by
My happy days are now;
While memory brings past bright days nigh.
This day's good we allow.

Yes, each new day I try to make
Advance on yesterday
One day less of earth's road to take
Toward the heavenly way.

As day by day we walk that way
The road grows smooth the while;
The somber clouds and evening gray
May brilliant hopes beguile.

Thus we may happiness possess,
And happiness impart;
Making in life our troubles less.
With loving, hopeful heart.
Mrs. C. K. Smith

Throughout our life, we will be taken in many different directions. Although we might feel like one section of our life may seem less important, its a good remind to all that every moment is important to your life and memories will be made for us all to look back on as we age.
