DUST IF YOU MUST


Dust if you must, but wouldn't it be better
To paint a picture or write a letter
Bake a cake or plant a seed
Ponder the difference between want and need.

Dust if you must, but there's not much time,
With rivers to swim and mountains to climb,
Music to listen to, books to read,
Friends to cherish and a life to lead.

Dust if you must but the world's out there
With the 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, as go you must
You yourself will make more dust.

Remember a house becomes a Home when you can write "I love you " on the furniture
