Appreciating Life

The sun will shine, and the clouds will rain 
these winds will blow, and love will yet feign 
the eye will see, and the heart will crave 
the body will sin, and sin will enslave 

The baby will crawl, and the boy will walk 
the man will run, and love will soon talk 
love's burning desire, but a fleeting fire 
age overcomes, desires quickly retire 

The old man now stooped over 
memories have but faded away 
that life once full of living, alas 
sitting in solitude, nothing but decay 

So in youth, don't ever miss the chance 
never stop dreaming, a time for romance 
the days are shadows, years will soon disappear 
don't miss these opportunities when you're young 
just because of this word called fear
