30 Days with a Grateful Heart: Day 9

A tragic day for a dear family friend.  A reminder to love fiercely and tenderly, as each day is an unpromised gift.


Vitae Summa Brevis Spem Nos Vetat Incohare Longam

by Ernest Dowson

The brief sum of life forbids us the hope of enduring long. – Horace
They are not long, the weeping and the laughter, 
Love and desire and hate: 
I think they have no portion in us after 
We pass the gate. 

They are not long, the days of wine and roses: 
Out of a misty dream 
Our path emerges for a while, then closes 
Within a dream.
