Have no worries for your future
Have no worries for your past
Life is meant to be lived during the present
Do not fret over mistakes made
Or attempt to preview our future
Enjoy life in the present.
Do not take for granted your opportunity to:
Score the winning goal
Relax with your best friends
Use the power of your own mind
Smell the fragrances of Fenway Park
Spend a day with the old man
Or hear the comforting sounds of family.
Take advantage of your great opportunity of life
For life is not promised to any of us.
I have said good-bye
To friends and family
And to others I have missed my chance.
Remember the important things in life.
Tell your parents you love them each day
Make everyday worthwhile.
Enjoy everyday as if it were your last.
Love life, live it to the fullest.
Time does not stop
For any of us.
And in each day there will be an hour
And in each hour there will be a minute
And in each minute there will be a second
And in that one second
There is a time you have never experienced before.
And then that second moves on
And you experience a new time in your life
One second at a time.
So live life one second at a time
Because that will be the last time
You will be in that one second.
