Remember, YOLO
Mothers bear, children are born
A single moment for us to learn
How truly precious life can be
And how early our souls are set free

Mothers tired, children crying
A single moment for the fleeing
How young we are to feel the pain
And how it will all go away

Mothers laugh, children jolly
A single moment to the merry
How our hearts burst with joy and song
And we will not before so long

Mothers teach the children firm
A single moment, a lesson of harm
How nurturing may we’ve been taught
And how soon it changes once we’ve been through a lot

Mothers clap, children grow up
A single moment to know enough’s enough
How we want to stay when we go
And how that may not happen before you know

Mothers visit, children living
A single moment to feel what’s missing
How we dream dreams of our days
And how we realize once it’s too late

Mothers ill, children grieve
A single moment before we leave
How we give away to our dreams
And how we stop crying just to breathe

Mothers and children now lie and rest
A single moment, though not the best
How we worry ‘til we are depressed
And how we become Heaven’s latest guest

Mothers bear, children are born
A single moment for us to learn
How truly precious life can be
And how I tell you to live it fully
To do what you do better than me.
