dust if you must

dust if you must...

but wouldn't it be better to paint a picture or write a letter,
bake cookies or a cake and lick the spoon or plant a seed,
ponder the difference between want and need!
dust if you must... but there's not much time.....

with wine to drink, rivers to swim, and mountains to climb,
music to hear and books to read, friends to cherish
and life to lead.

dust...if you must...

but the world's out there with sun in your eyes,
the wind in your hair,
a flutter of snow, a shower of rain,
this day will not come around again.

dust if you must,
but bear in mind, old age will come and it's not kind.

and when you go....and go you, yourself, will make
more dust!

it's not what you gather but what you scatter that tells what kind of
life you have lived. - unk
