Death's Rhythm

Death's Rhythm

Death beats a steady rhythm 
Sounding loud within my chest
Starting at the time of conception
So strong and powerful
It counts down second by second
You try to really live your life
Doing things that make you happy
Finding the love that God gave you
No matter what you can do
No mater what you can say
You cannot plead your case
Death still beats a steady rhythm
All you can do is live for the moment
Ignore the steady pounding in your chest
Forget that time is short and precious
Live, love, enjoy what you are doing
Then when Death's rhythm stops
You can laugh in his face
Taunt him for eternity
Tell him that you lived a good life
That you have been happy
Tell him that you have made others happy
Then, as final words, tell him you are ready
You have no regrets
Then get your wings and enjoy eternity
Always remember that you lived
And that you had a good life
That is all you will ever need
