Live Life to the Fullest

Catch the leaf that falls to the ground,
blink the tears behind your lashes,
laugh at the irony of a flightless bird,
and run your fingers through your hair.

Smell the rose that grows on the bush,
swim in the lake that waters the plants,
slip into a dreamless sleep,
and watch the comet fly in the sky.

Cry for the broken girl,
pop the bubbles that fill the tub,
hold a baby as if it is your own,
and climb a vine of orange flowers.

Live for the rest of eternity,
breathe until your last breath,
let your heart skip a beat in time,
and love everything that fills your soul.
