The Wheel


 The wheel of life is ever turning
even as laughing children play

Inexorably toward their future as
tomorrow’s seniors faded grey

Spinning though you may resist
why waste a moment day or year

It won’t delay for you or me
nor shed one solitary tear

Live life now, live it well
what’s to gain if you do not

Still waiting for a great event
or some degree you haven’t got

The wheel spins just the same
you couldn’t stop it if you tried

And wouldn’t it be a tragedy to
never have lived before you died
