24 Hours to Live
Christmas was truly magical,
Sharing love’s tender gift,
To sing a merry madrigal,
And ring in a New Year’s riff!
But, March can deal us madness,
Spring can go unseen,
In death’s certain sadness
We grey the growing green.
A last sunset will be framed,
As a last song fades away,
A cold molded stone will be reluctantly named,
And yours will pray.
Was it a blessing to have known?
Or a curse to have not?
Would most souls rather be shown?
Would most rather be given a shot?
To love yours like never before,
To hug yours until the end of the world,
To kiss yours until your lips will kiss no more,
To love yours like never before.
