Life is fragile
It only lasts for a while
Days come and go
Never seem to go slow
Everything is fast
We don’t make it last
Cherish your day
Make it stay
For a minute or two
You’ll make it through
No matter how bad
No matter how sad
Tomorrow will come
Sooner for some
Later for others
Tell your mother
You love her
She’ll be gone in a blur
Cherish your past
Make the present last
Stay for a while
Try to smile
Don’t give up the fight
Hold her tight
Look at the stars in the sky
It’s ok to cry
Make everyone your friend
Everyone leaves in the end
Try to laugh
Learn to love
