Live A Life That Matters

Ready or not,
someday it will all come
to an end.

There will be no more sunrises,
no minutes, hours or days.

All the things you collected,
whether treasured or forgotten,
will pass to someone else.

Your wealth,
fame and temporal power
will shrivel to irrelevance.

It will not matter
what you owned
or what you were owed.

Your grudges, resentments,
frustrations, and jealousies
will finally disappear.

So, too, your hopes, ambitions,
plans, and to-do lists
will expire.

The wins and losses
that once seemed so important
will fade away.

It won't matter
where you came from,
or on what side of the tracks
you lived, at the end.

It won't matter
whether you were beautiful
or brilliant.

Even your gender and skin color
will be irrelevant.

So what will matter?
How will the value of your days
be measured?

What will matter
is not what you bought,
but what you built;
not what you got,
but what you gave?

What will matter
is not your success,
but your significance.

What will matter
is not what you learned,
but what you taught.

What will matter
 is every act of integrity,
compassion, courage or sacrifice
that enriched, empowered or
encouraged others
to emulate your example.

What will matter
 is not your competence,
but your character.

What will matter is not
how many people you knew,
but how many
will feel a lasting loss
when you're gone.

What will matter
 is not your memories,
but the memories that live
in those who loved you.

What will matter is how long
you will be remembered,
by whom and for what.

Living a life that matters
doesn't happen by accident.
it's not a matter of circumstance
but of choice.

Choose to live a life
that matters.

Let Your Spirit Fly

When you walk
Your longest mile
When you face
Your hardest trial
If it hurts
Too much to cry
Let your spirit fly

There will be love on the wind
There will be hope in the end
So let us go
You and I
Let our sprits fly

I will be there
By your side
And we will try
To catch the wind and ride
Above the heartache
And the pain
Above the dark and never-ending rain
This I swear
I will try
To help your spirit fly

May you be wise
May you be kind
May you be happy
With what you find
May you dance
On higher ground
May you keep a simple sound
And never have to question why
Let your spirit fly

I will be there
There will be time
You will be a lover and a friend of mine
And this I swear I will try
To help your spirit fly

When we arise
From this sleep
There will be promises to keep
And if we must say goodbye
Let your spirit fly

And if we must say goodbye
Let your spirit fly
