What are we each given in a day
The same amount of time for all
As those seconds tick tick away
Do we hear our mortality call.
What are we given in a year
The number of years do vary
As they pass by so quickly
Do we give more than we carry.
What are we given in a lifetime
The passage of time we can’t halt
As you look back on your time
Do you find success or lay fault.
What are we given in a memory
Do we see what others might see
Can see feel that we had pride
Do we smile back at our legacy.
