One moment in time did change my life,
What once was peace, now is strife.
Am I alive or am I dead?
Why do these drums beat in my head?
My mom and bro are by my side,
Telling me about my wild ride.
I did just escape from death,
For a time, I held no breath.
A bright light did guide my way,
But my Gran said I could not stay.
There was more for me down here,
And there was nothing for me to fear.
She said I would not die,
And that I should not cry.
I would return to her someday,
But that day was far away.
For now, I must return below,
Where I could learn and grow.
I know now that it is true,
The world is bigger than me and you.
From that moment, I live each day,
Knowing it could all go away.
Live each moment like it’s your last,
Enjoy your life and have a blast.
