Live out each day like it might be your last,
Don’t plan for the future, don’t hide from the past,
Smile at strangers and you just might change a life,
Offer kisses and hugs even in pain and strife.
Don’t count all your money, count all your friends,
Don’t look to the dark side as a means to the end,
Shake off your stresses, your worries, your cares,
This life is a challenge, so take on the dares.
Don’t tell people your heartaches, tell them your dreams,
Let them know that life can be better than it seems,
Don’t number your problems, number the stars,
Gaze up to heaven and see the distance isn’t far.
Don’t let your whole life be ruled by your fear,
Cherish the memories of all things you hold dear,
Don’t hold back the tears as they fall from your eyes,
Don’t give in to sadness, or fall for the lies
You can fly with the angels, you can sing in the night,
Don’t let your head doubt what your heart knows is right,
Whisper a secret to the dawn of the day,
Look to your loved ones to show you the way.
Don’t run from the truth, but accept it with pride,
Don’t keep all your feelings sheltered inside,
Let your silver turn gold, let your hopes all come true,
Pray your joys will be many and your sorrows be few.
Let the glow in your heart reflect in your soul,
So you know what it’s like to have and to hold,
Til death do you part, may you treasure the sights,
That this life had to offer, its enchantments and delights.
Search for contentment in each person you meet,
Let yourself find freedom, don’t just stand still on your feet,
Dance, be at ease, for you’ve got one life to live,
Put your heart on the line and give it all you can give.
with many peaceful blessings
