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 not to be wasted

Life not to be hastened

I live and cherish each day

There’s only “once” along the way

Every moment in time

I must own as mine
