I don’t want to wake up
Wondering what might have been.
I’ll live today as if it’s my last.
I want to laugh until it hurts
Love more than humanly possible.
Stick my toes in warm waters
Jump just to feel the wind beneath me,
Smile at everyone I see,
Feel the sun against my skin
Let gratitude rule my days.
Dance and skip and sing
I want to be silly
Just because it lightens up my days
I want to break free of barriers to joy,
To do work I love
That makes a difference in the world.
Allow nature to heal me as much as it can,
Sit with trees and really smell the flowers.
Never take for granted what’s
In front of me right now
Because tomorrow isn’t
I never know when I
Won’t be able
To do the things I want.
So I’ll feel gratitude for every day
Tell people that I care,
Live without regrets.
