How would your life change if you had but one year?

How would the news impact your hopes, dreams, and fears?


Would you invest more time in your current profession?

Or feel the need for greater purpose and expression?


Would you settle on a relationship long since grown stale?

Or seek a special bond you know will prevail?


Would you surround yourself with loyal friends from the past?

Or spend time with new acquaintances unlikely to last?


Time waits for no one and only you hold the key

To unlock the door and set yourself free.


So live each day like you are starting anew.

And savor every moment as if you had but a few.
