Memento Mori is Latin for "remember you are mortal"
Carpe Diem is Latin for "seize the day"
When only in my state of thanksgiving
I count riches and all blessing it brings;
I am imbued of great joy reliving
and I am wiser to wonderful things.
Memento Mori and Carpe Diem -
there is much to see and much to begin,
so live well and long that in years to come
you not look back and muse what might have been!
Now if from your helping cause I abstain,
or when in lonesome brooding I am sad
in futile excess, I'll beg once again
to hear you curing say "I love you dad!"
Oh wife and child it's you and only you
that makes me love and do the things I do.
