Poem: " Building Treasures to Last"

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Building treasures to last is about someone chasing his dreams hoping to build a lifetime of memories before fate deals it's hand.

Living life in the moment treasuring each precious minute.

Fearing the hands of time is moving too fast.

"Make This Moment Last " by Jim Gaven


"Building Treasures to Last"

Chasing dreams
like lightning in a storm,
building treasures
to last a lifetime.

Living in the moment,
not ready for fate
to deal it’s hand,
praying to make this precious time
last a moment longer.

Tears of sadness touch her heart
watching the hands of time move too fast.

For where your Treasure is

There will your Heart also be.

— Luke 12:34
