Last day of the month again

Is life rushing by you as fast as it is for me?
I can see the months turning into years
then decades too quickly as I use each day.
Today my hubby was so pleased at lunch
when I fixed his favorite food-pizza that
he said, I'm gonna miss you when I'm gone.



Feeling that he'll expire before me even
though he's younger, exasperates me
at looking ahead to that possibility.
I plan to live forever then be twinkled
into my next life but in case not, I'm
fine with expiring to a better place
and meeting loved ones waiting.

I say...Let's live this day fully,
being the best we can be,
loving those around us
trying to change only ourselves
and living without regrets.

I want to eat life up with a fork and knife.

Nice to be reminded to live every day the best we can. I do agree with you, time races by, faster all the while.
