The Scrub Hare – Jackson Kiddard
Let today be a day where you take nothing for granted.
For life is fleeting, fragile and precious and can change on a whim.
Say all the things you really want to say to your loved ones today,
say the things you would regret should they pass on
and your words remain unspoken.
Rejoice, for you and they are alive today –
and should you or them pass on to unknown shores,
rejoice even more for you have a wonderful love story to tell.
from all of us at Londolozi
