Each passing day

Death grows ever nearer

One cannot stop it there is no way

Hold onto life much more dearer

World begins to darken and fade

A shell of what I used to be

Looking back at the life, I made

My life, it's not about me

Who will remember

The darkness grows deeper

My passing this December

Don't fear the reaper

Do not morn my loss

It is my friends I will miss

Lived life to the fullest, at all costs

Remember this

Who I was

What I made you feel

I want you to remember because

My laughter was real

When I was with you, I was alive

Memories will be told

My legacy I have left, you must decide

New stories that you must unfold

Never allowing me to grow old
