It’ll be gone soon,
That’s no excuse for now.
Just because it ends,
Is no reason to rush.

You can’t live your life,
Years spent wondering how,
You’ll go like fallen leaves,
Vanishing in the brush.

The worst you can do,
Is go before it’s right.
You’ll never know for sure,
How it all ends.

It may seem easier,
Than to stay and fight.
But it’s worth it,
To family and friends.

Do not linger long,
On what has yet to come.
Nor on the past,
And words left unsaid.

Instead take pride,
Where you’ve been and from.
You are for the living,
Doubts are for the dead.

Infinity lies ahead,
Whatever way you look.
So if you must remember,
Let it be to breathe.

For if ages are chapters,
Your life is a book;
Just because it’ll end,
Isn’t reason not to read.
