Treasure Island

Maria C. Costa

A Special Request


I have no time
To waste any longer.
I just want to live
Each day in wonder.
The past was glorious,
Exciting, challenging.
The present is different,
Has brought maturity, a new mission.
Other horizons inhabit the mind,
Inviting the soul to be serene, kind.
God has made a special request:
'Keep active, be helpful and positive,
Accept your plight every day you live
'cause the future always comes next...

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
