"Lifetime"



With your very first breath,
the arrangement is done,
fixed and sealed,
being someones daugther,
or someones son

Hours are given,
with values and secrets hidden,
in your days to come,
some kind of finding,
and conversion

Through the ages,
against all odds,
you turn the pages,
in your book of life

Writing all down,
chapter by chapter,
telling your story about,
a time to live,
a time to love,
a time to regret,
a time of wonders,
a time of wisdom,
a time to die

Your own lifetime,
unique and precious,
more than you ever know ...
