Only “Once”


“Happiness is not a station you arrive at, but a manner of traveling.”
Margaret Lee Runbeck

Moving down the road of life

Do I opt for left or right?

Time should not be wasted

Life should not be hastened

Live to love and cherish each day

There’s only “once” along the way

Every moment in time

I must own as mine
