Live like your dying and die like your living.


If you think that dying is bad
You didn't use wisely the life
That you had
So, live like your dying
And die like your living
And always remember to love

I once met a man
Who was tired and angry
Everything he did
Seemed like a chore
Then came the cancer
And then came the dying
And all the regrets
For the life that he had

Run away from your fears
And life will be better for all

He gathered his friends
And his family together
Asking forgiveness
For what he had done
His final regrets
At the end of his life
Was how he had wasted
The time that he had

Run away from your fears
And life will be better for all
