in death

to say one is laid to rest
remember the life their smile the person they were.... then your life,
all your problems seem so small compared to this more or less
you can see in others what they are thinking 
life's to short, you need to not take it for granted, should of, could of, would of,
you get so caught up in today's world you forget...the day are shrinking
it takes death for you to take a moment and breath
to hold your loved ones to talk to the ones you don't talk with
to forgive for get to smell the roses and just be
even to realize maybe your not living at all 
no regrets, show your love, smile, breath, make you 
you can live in rage, in pain, in remorse, gilt, happy , sad, behind a your wall,
but is it living...if you were to die today is there some thing to be said
some thing you wanted to do live the way you truly deserve to live
to be humbled, grateful, and happy always as you lay in your bed
this is your journey, your path, the road you chose
place no blame on those who tress past before you or on the cards you were dealt
give, cherish, love, remember, forgive, smile, and be the REAL you.
