Did You?


Did you stop to smell the flowers,
walk barefoot in the sand;
did you fill the days and hours
and explore both sea and land?

Have you opened the gifts I gave you,
made the most of all the time;
did you enjoy each day as brand new,
did you taste the fruit and vine?

Did you live the life I gave you?
Did you run and laugh and play?
Did you do the best you could do?
Did you work while it was day?
