A poem about life

One day everything and everyone you ever loved will be gone,

Parents, brothers, sisters, children and grandchildren will be nothing more than memories for someone,

Everything they've said, done or layed their hands upon,

It's through distant relatives we'll never meet that'll help our legacy live on,

Live for today 'cause tomorrow could be your last,

Feel every emotion, every heartbreak and make the most of every laugh,

Cherish your families time and never comprimise,

Because before you know it them special moments will be gone before your eyes,

One day you'll sit and think to yourself how time flies,

You'll realise that your children aren't children anymore and they're living their own lives,

Make the most of today and don't leave it till tomorrow,

'Cause that's where heartbreak appears along with anger and with sorrow,

Laugh together through the good times,

Cry together through the sad,

Share the great times,

But more importantly share the bad.
