And I always thought life was hard,
Some mornings were definitely difficult,
And some nights were sleepless,
My body was not my own,
My thoughts were not the best,
And yet I’ve powered through.
We’ve powered through it all.
We thought there’s going to be more time
To reach to where we want to be,
To go to all the places we want to see,
To feel all of the love we want to feel.
The truth is simple, hard, demanding,
Tiring, even upsetting.
The only time we have left is now.
We can’t go back and change the past,
We can’t go forward and fix what we don’t know.
And day by day, and night by night,
We draw in breath; we draw in life.
There is no dark, there’s only light,
The death is silent, no more strife.
