Sands of Time

    Lives of great men all remind us
        We can make our lives sublime,
    And, departing, leave behind us
        Footprints on the sands of time ;

    Footprints, that perhaps another, 
        Sailing o'er life's solemn main,
    A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
        Seeing, shall take heart again.
    Let us, then, be up and doing,
        With a heart for any fate ;
    Still achieving, still pursuing,
        Learn to labor and to wait.

A psalm of life by Longfellow recited by a dear friend of mine.
How simple and elegant. 
Few words made by day, some actions broke my heart, some artifacts made me smile, yet another day I sail.
