“Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by every moment that takes your breath away.”
Every moment has a breath –
Inhale, exhale, sigh.
And often we live cautiously
While these breaths pass us by.
We only have a certain number
And then they are done.
All are precious, all are fleeting –
Do not waste a one.
Take the chances, do the dances,
Give yourself in love.
Sing with gusto, live completely
Like it’s Heav’n above.
Open up your heart and life
And let that someone in
Mother, father, sister, brother,
Great lover and friend.
Every breath, before it passes,
Should be used to live.
Step out freely, no regrets now,
You have much to give.
