Through Life Time Marches On

through-life-time-marches-on

Time marches on
and we go bravely with it.
We toot our own horns
and march in our own parades.
We do all that we can,
to make our lives a joy.
Time marches on,
we cannot stop it -
but we can make it worth every minute.
Be young at heart,
never stop enjoying living.
Blow your bugles
and sound your trumpets.
Time marches on -
but we can dance with it.
Life is full of marvels
and wonders,
let’s enjoy every moment while we can.
So as time marches on,
let’s march right along.
We can’t stop time -
but we can make a party of it.
Let’s enjoy,
let’s live,
let’s be,
let’s find the rainbow’s end -
as time marches on.

Sometimes time does feel like a march or a trudge or foot dragging. Interesting take on time.

Glad you enjoyed the poem Chitrangada. It helps to find ways to brighten our days and even make memories stand out from the rest.

That is true Vidya because time will go on anyway and it helps to find moments that bring smiles even memories are brighter.

It also helps to make the memories shine when I look back on photos and they make me smile but don't make me sad. At least I lived those moments Pamela.

That's true, Shauna. It is best to move on and find a way to make life enjoyable. Both my writing and my poetry help greatly.

That is how it is, Peggy. I make sure I find something to enjoy every day.

Nice and uplifting poem, Rasma.

Yes, life moves on, time moves on, and we must keep on moving with the flow.

Thank you for sharing.

Great poem Gypsy Rose. Time moves on, and if we don't make the most of every moment, we lose out on life.

Excellent philosophy, Rasma! Life is a journey and should be enjoyed.

Making each moment count is the right attitude, for none of us can stop the march of time.

That is the best thing we can do Brenda otherwise life is just not worth living.

And the best to you Bill in both life and love.

I totally agree with you Ann and I thank the Lord for each new day.

A whole lot of loving going on, my friend. Carpe Diem!

Great poetry here, to the rhythm of the march of time. You've done a superb job and the refrain works so well.

Make the most of each moment, indeed! We must all do that, or life is wasted.

Ann
