When the grim reaper comes to take you away
Will you reflect on your life?
Or will you throw those memories away?
Did you achieve your hopes and dreams?
Or did you watch them float by like a cloud on a windy day?
Did you show your loved ones how you felt about them?
Or did you get wrapped up in yourself and let the emotions you felt for the important people 
go astray?
But this is not an act 
Life is not a play
Before your time comes
Do what you have to do 
Say what you have to say
Life is too short
For everyone who reads this
I hope your life is beautiful and everything goes your way

    I love how this poem reminds you to live everyday to the fullest. We're not promised tomorrow but the here and now, we can make something wonderful in that with all the amazing people in our lives.
