Your last day was appointed
Your final breath, you knew, was near
So you called your family to your side
To tell them what, in the end, was dear
Your idea of worth was different than before
That suddenly the value of material things, decreased
Diplomas, money, things
Mattered not the very least
The late nights with your family
And the captured memories on the wall
The things we took for granted
No longer seem that small
In the end what matters is solely up to you
The lives you touched, the mark you left
The wise advice you gave
Are things never forgotten
Long after your in your grave
So with my family near
I told them what I wished
That I could live my life again
With this very simple list:
To love deeply, to always care
Never judge what you don't know
Be happy, Stay humble, listen
Don't let you dreams and talents go
Live with passion, learn, give
Take time every day to read
You not as busy as you think
Give to those in need
So with my last breath
I told them not to live life with regrets
So live your life according to my very simple list
