The Hours Fall

Through night and day
Can't you feel the seconds ticking by
The hours falling away
As we take step by step
To the very end of the road

We're never here to stay
So let's all hold on as we try
Our best to find our way
With all of our moments left
And everything that we've known

So let's seize every minute we have, each day of our lives
Make each one more special than the one before
Every cry and each laugh, under dark and deep blue skies
Every treasured memory forevermore

Look to the future so bright, to our destinies
Dwell not on our failures haunting the past
The light at the end is in sight, the dreams we can achieve
Across the open seas we sail, reaching higher than the stars

Watch the hours fall into the sky
Though we're just waiting on our dreams
Like we're gonna have a second chance
If it all just goes and slips away
When will we know that now's the time to fly
And when will we know what it truly means
To break free and learn from the past
And to stand tall and not be afraid
So can we rise to the stars before our inevitable fate
Treasure each moment while it's not too late

In the sun and the rain
Let not our words be lost
Deep in the sadness and disdain
Of everything we've lost
And everything we've known

We've got so much to gain
No matter what the cost
And though things won't stay the same
Deep even in the icy frost
And everything unknown

So let us not fear the end. when we're finally there 
Instead let's cherish each beautiful day
Treasure our family and friends, until we're no longer there
Until all the world has fallen far away

And know that death is not the end of our legacies
'Cause they live on far beyond our lives
So take a breath, take my hand, towards our destinies
For this is our reason to go the extra miles

Watch the hours fall into the sky
Though we're just waiting on our dreams
Like we're gonna have a second chance
If it all just goes and slips away
When will we know that now's the time to fly
And when will we know what it truly means
To break free and learn from the past
And to stand tall and not be afraid
So can we rise to the stars before our inevitable fate
Treasure each moment while it's not too late

And think about it all, of every breath we take
How many more just breathed their last
Don't forget about it all, embrace what's left to take
We'll never be destroyed by the past

Ignore whatever they say. that might bring you down
Don't ever forget what you're living for
Emerging out from the fray, we stand tall and proud
We will only be gone when no one loves us anymore

Watch the hours fall into the sky
Though we're just waiting on our dreams
Like we're gonna have a second chance
If it all just goes and slips away
When will we know that now's the time to fly
And when will we know what it truly means
To break free and learn from the past
And to stand tall and not be afraid
So can we rise to the stars before our inevitable fate
Treasure each moment while it's not too late

Thank you so much Marie Harrison and Dinesh for inspiring this one! I sure owe you guys one!
Our society has been feeding us the "fear death" mentality, be it directly or indirectly. personally this is not the way i want to live. the important think is not to fear death, but to be mindful of death.
think about it. surely we would treat each other far better than what we do now if we realized that we could never see each other again!
surely we would seize each moment if we realized that this could be our last!
why do we fear death? do we think that we will lose everything? we will truly be gone from this world when no one loves us anymore, and all our contributions are ignored and trampled upon. why else do you think people say "I'll be with you in spirit" when they can't be there personally?
somehow i find that only the terminally ill and dying realize this. why don't we realize this now and live our lives much better?

great poem and I love how you explained the reason for the writing. And we should never fear death, because it might be the end of physical body but the spirit lives on.

time flies by so quickly, just a moment ago and I was a child; more than a half century passed in the blink of an eye. Do not wait for the "right" day to follow your dreams, life will end with your dreams unfulfilled and heart full of regre
Good piece with great power. I hope people hear what you are saying and put your words into action.

Wow... This one really touched me. Partly because it really needed to be said. People don't realize that they need to cherish the moments they do have, enjoy it while its there. Don't let life pass you by. And partly because my four year old is facing terminal cancer. He only has maybe three or four weeks left. And every moment I spend with him its like I can literally just see time moving. "Watch the hours fall". The thing is I'm trying to make the most of them while they're here. Not let a single milisecond pass by that I'm not using it to its fullest.

"And think about it all, of every breath we take
How many more just breathed their last
Don't forget about it all, embrace what's left to take
We'll never be destroyed by the past"

That line almost made me cry.

And the last two lines were just beautiful...

"So can we rise to the stars before our inevitable fate
Treasure each moment while it's not too late"

Excellent work. Your poems always manage to touch me somehow, this one especially so. I hope you don't mind, I'm adding it to my favorites. Wonderful job. 100%

I really really loved this poem because this poem speaks out my thoughts too. Why not live like it's our last day on this planet? What if you die in this moment and all you can see you life as is all it could have been? We should not fear death, but appreciate life each and every moment.
The poem is absolutely beautiful. :)
