    3 days is all you have to live
    What will you take
    What shall you give
    3 days to make your wishes come true
    Just what would, you
    Chose to do
    No reason to buy material things
    What joy can they bring
    Because in 3 days your life will be no more
    Say goodbye to the ones you’ve ever cared for
    If 3 days is all you have left in life
    What would you say to your husband or wife
    Son or mother
    Sister or brother
    Would there be words to find…
    To say to the ones your leaving be hide
    What would you say to the child
    Who doesn’t understand
    After you explain again and again
    Tell me…
    Would you cry
    Know there’s only 3 days until you die
    How would you feel when the 3 days are up
    Would you be tough
    For everyone else
    Or would your main concern be yourself
    What if you didn’t know you only had 3 days
    Would you change your ways
    Most likely not
    Because you didn’t know 3 days was all you got
    It can happen in a flash
    Your life is in the past
    So many things you’ve forgotten to say
    And it’s already that last day
    Life is very precious
    It can be taking before its even giving
    Be thankful for each day that you are living

    NOW, I LOVE THIS ONE.....REALLY LOVE THIS ONE.

    How would you feel when the 3 days are up
    Would you be tough
    For everyone else
    Or would your main concern be yourself

    "live each day as if it was your last, because one of these days, it will be." - Jeremy Schwartz
