Our place on this earth
Is leasehold
And we hold the tenure
For only a short space of time

Each day
We should cherish and nurture
Given opportunities
We ought to seize the line

For there are
Two things that we know for sure
We get born
And then we die

What we do
With that time in between
In our own hands
That lies

Live each day as if it's your last
Is an adage often quoted
Tempting to lay in bed till late
Though redundant in what we achieve

Snatch every breath
Take in every sight
Smile and
Don't be aggrieved

Too late as He calls you
To visit His House
And wish and wish and wish

Do it now
Before it's too late
