If you don’t take the chance to live life, what can you say at the end of it? – Naveen Andrews
Before the final curtain falls
will I taste the wine in Rome
and walk the beaches on the Gold Coast?
Will I find my value not from the lips of others
but from my own?
Will I wake the dreams inside me
and take them by the hand to where they want to go?
Will I smell a campfire one more time
and feel the morning dew kiss my face?
Will I show my passion
and let it burn bright for the world?
Will I savor love
and let it cover me like a warm coat?
Will I live like I know what I’m leaving behind
and soak in every second?
Will I ignore the lies
and stop them from breaking the spirit of my soul?
Will I find peace from the bottle she held tighter than me?
hang on to hope
lean on faith
before the final curtain falls down on me?
I will let
lead me to the final curtain.
That’s how I know I will savor the wine in Rome
and then find peace
before my final bow.
