Take a deep breath in
Hold it for a moment
Now let it go slowly
That may or may not excite you
As life has been a little shaky lately
Almost as if the solid rock you once stood on
Is melting ice, thanks to global warming!

It means you still have another chance
To allow life smack you in the face
Or run to the throne of grace.
Everyone dies someday
But for you, not today
So do me one favour, love
