An Extraordinary Life

I remember a time when life was easier
A time when there were no cares or responsibilities
And reasons to be mature A simple time to live
When days were filled with sunshine and laughter
Where no matter what happened your attention to something was more than enough to give
Why is it that when we're 10 we wish to be 20
And when we're 40 we wish to be 16 again
I wish I knew then what I know now
That is that all the time we are given is plenty
To create happiness and make amends
All the days of our lives
And to know that all our hardships and tribulations
Will make us strong in the end
So let us live with happiness and sorrows but no regrets
For the time to be alive is NOW
Dream your dreams and make them shine
And be sure to leave smiles, not frowns on the faces of those you've met
For these are the rules of living an extraordinary life
