Bottle of Life


Life, Love and Friendship,
The three ingredients to survive,
Mix to make a golden potion,
or a bottleful of bittersweet wine.

Life, too short to live,
Love, very hard to find,
Friendship, difficult to keep,
Drink all to live this life.

One ingredient too much,
One ingredient too slight,
Drink to be merry,
or drown in sorrows of life.

The great brewer sitting above,
brews everyone a potion just right,
“Drink but don’t loose your senses,
drink till the lees, this life.
And when your bottle gets empty
and you see the bright white light,
come taste my pure nectar of Heaven,
Please bring your empty bottle of life”.
