My mother always said to take every shot,
Who knows if l would get it again or not?
She always wanted me to give it my best,
To put all my efforts in every test.
My mother always said that every moment is to cherish,
And then to never let that memory perish.
She believed that things should always be treasured,
As the joy it’ll give you some day cannot be measured.
My mother always said to give people a second chance,
Who knows how much they might advance?
She always looks on the bright side of things,
To savour what each day always brings.
My mother always said to live each moment as your last,
It might make it an important detail of your past.
She believed that life only knocks at your door once,
And that it just passes and waits for none.
My mother always said that nothing’s more important than trust,
It shines in people at first and then turns to dust.
She wanted me to always be safe and free,
And to embrace every opportunity life threw at me!
