We might be strong now
Standing straight and walking briskly
Going around getting things done

But one day
We may just fall ill and meet our demise
That big tough built no more
Just lying flat on the bed

We may hold on to him so close
He may not let us go
Never wanting to

But before we know it, the time has come
One of us will have to leave first

Appreciate your health
Stand straight for the benefit of others
Give without expecting return

Look around and see
Those who cared for us deeply
Who are there when you need them
Even when you don’t know that you do

Look around with gratitude
Be there for each other
Use our strength for those who don’t have it

Life is too short
And we are powerless
If even the small mosquitoes could kill
Or wreak havoc to the world
