Memento Mori

Kiss me while we have the chance
Love me in denial
Hold me while it's still ok
And while life, death can't defile.

For every single heart beat
And every single breathe
For every single moment
Brings us one step closer to Death.

So kiss me while we have a chance
We'll have life in glory
Just love me in life's denial
I promise you won't be sorry
Hold me while it's all ok
We'll have this desperate story
And we'll live before Death's coming
For always remember Memento Mori.

    Great poem Holly. I like the idea of living in this immediate moment, of realizing that there is no other moment but this one, especially when it comes to feeling alive through the five senses, through the savoring of one's lover, through showing kindness, through simply being.
