     The difference in life - is -
         a little late --
            too late.
    Image should be a person’s
           way of life,
    not an economic statement
         of circumstance.
     I must be of the moment.
     Love always seeks union,
   to be shared and treasured.
      Love is of no value if
        it is not shared.
       Life is of no value
       unless it is shared.
   A lot of life boils down to,
        I should have been
         here yesterday –
 “A dollar short and a day late.”
