Life, they say, is much smarterWhen we live in the present and
Learn from the past.
But this ship moves incessantly forward
With no clue to how long
The voyage may last.
So, we watch the horizon
For sails and for shore,
Watch the sky for the birds on the wing,
Bless the bounty below and
Thank God up above
For the hope opportunity brings.
But perilous waters on tossed stormy seas
Give pause and are cause for alarm,
So, the vigil we keep
As we traverse the deep
Is the passport to keep us from harm.
Hence, we live in the moment
Enjoying the warm,
But we watch the horizon
To weather the storm.
