Before I die
there are so many things I want to try,
so many places I want to see
before there is nothing left of me.
Before I go away
I want the world to remember my name
at least for a while for things that I did,
to become a part of the human’s history.
Before I close my eyes
I want to climb high and dive
into the void of a frozen abyss,
feel my lungs burn when I scream.
Before I take my last breath
I want to save a life or truly help
someone who needs it the most
before I become a ghost.
Before I see the end
whatever is broken I want to mend;
out of scattered pieces make the whole
before I forever go.
Before I turn into dust
I want to be loved and love at last,
to give a life, a new energy thread
before I am dead.
