Carpe Diem!

The time is now to seize the day;
Mustn’t wait ‘til old and gray.
Make the most of the time you’re given;
Too late at death, to think of livin.’

The grave’s no place to take regrets,
Live for now; don’t hedge your bets.
Kiss your kids, and love your spouse,
For without them, you’ve just a house!

Do it now, that dreamed of deed;
Don’t hesitate—take the lead.
Is there one for whom you care?
Tell them now ‘fore Gabriel’s blare.

The time is now, to seize the day,
Mustn’t wait ‘til old and gray;
Make the most of time you’re given;
Death’s no time to think of livin.’
