is way too short
And where it goes, nobody knows
The years just fly by
The older you get, the faster it goes.
When you reach middle age
You start wishing you'd done…
A whole lot of things differently
Like worried less and had more fun.
Like communicate more without anger
Write more letters, go visiting more
Show others how much you care
Start now, if you haven't before.
It's never too late to be there
For family and friends you care about
This will make you a better person
I can say this without a doubt.
A warm embrace will show you care
Give more hugs and kisses too
Put on a smile, but be sincere
It won't even hurt to say, "I love you."
Don't wait until it's too late
To let someone know how you feel
Today is here, tomorrow is no guarantee
Show them today, but be real.
If you wait, you may be sorry
That loved one won't always be here
If you don't tell them today
Tomorrow , you may shed a tear.
