One life to live.

To live our lives to the fullest, to live with little or no regret.
To tell our friends and loved ones,that them we will never forget.
Because we have no guarantees, so take the chances that we get.

We only have just one life to live.
To show others the love we have to give.
Let the love seep in, as if it were pouring through a sieve.

We are only human, we will have our share of bad days.
Know that you are loved, not only on the good days, but always.
And our strength will come, as we develop our individual ways.

We will all find our way in which to deal.
And then in due time, our souls will heal.
It will be an amazing feeling, just to feel real.

Just to be a support to the ones we care about.
To let them vent, scream, cry, or even shout.
That's what being friends is all about.

It's not about being selfish, it's to think of others first.
When they are in need, and they're feeling at their worst.
So that they don't bottle it up, until they're ready to burst.
