The Secret Of Life Poem
If you've these days got love and work,
And happy health and true-tried friends,
Still know a time, a day awaits,
One sure to come, when this all ends.
And those best loved will pass away,
And work that sates will be no more,
And good health was your yesterday,
And age has left you friendship poor.
So make not future joys your measure,
Today's sweet simple ones life's treasure.
