One doesn’t know how much time is left as the sands of life trickle through;
So pack with care your case of life
And preserve the good and the true.
Place your laughter near the top
And bury sorrow down deep.
Put your worries and cares to one side and good memories forever keep.
Place the wisdom and love above all,
Over everything else in the case.
They are the trophies won in the end
Over life’s battles you’ve faced.
Now gently close the lid with care
And wait for your Creator’s call.
Hold strong and steadfast to your case of life and pray that you never falter or fall.
