Salutary advice

      When in the summer of you life, enjoy
       Live for the day and have a ball.
       The years will fly, too soon you're old
       And winter pains will take their toll.  


       Store memories to make you smile
       So you can live them all again,
       Recalling friends who've meant a lot
       But now are gone, while you remain.

  1. I can feel some pain in these few lines counteracted by the re-living of memories. Eight lovely lines. Thank you.
