Her notepad poems:
Second By Second Poem

Second by second

As times flowing past, second by second
Away to the past, never to return
Then a day has gone, All of those seconds
Once the time has gone, It does not return
Always remember, Enjoy that second
When you remember, It will not return
Make the most of it, Use that second
So try and live it, It can not return

About This Poem

When you are young you feel like life is going to last forever, but as you get older you start to realise that your lifetime is not infinite and every second that passes has gone for good and it's one second less you have to do the things you want to do in life! My suggestion is to get there and do those things while you can, you never know when life is going to throw a spanner in the works :(
