Last Walk

Is this my last walk through my only life?
I won't take a chance I will hug my wife

I was given a set number of days
Still I wasted them in so many ways

Seconds to minutes I want them to last
I try to hold on time ticks away fast

Can I reverse time or set the brakes?
Will anything make up for my mistakes?

Closer to the ending than to the start
I try to examine break down each part

Thinking of the ending helps me get things done
Some days were wasted but not every one.

Seeing the finish I  pick up the pace
I know I will meet my God face to face

When my ending comes I will have no regret
Happy with the Journey and the people I met

    though my age still plenty but sometimes I had the same thought as you are above your verses, who ever know when the "big day" will come and pick us up, yet I think before all become too late so I tried to spend every moment which pass by gazing and sensing them each and every second, enjoy your life my friend.. you are worth because you are loved by people surround you, live with no regrets :)

    I believe you have a way to go yet but best you get prepared. I've been prepared for about 20 years now!

    Thanks Irfana, based on my limited perspective and how you interact with people I would say the odds are in your favor.
