One Life

November 2, 2009
We have one life.
We screw it up.
We make mistakes.
We get another chance.
We have a tear for every smile.
We have a cry for each laugh.
We still have that smile.
We still have that laugh.
We are still alive.
We will get old.
We will get laugh lines on our faces,
We will be proud of them
We are still alive.
