How do you know when it's your last day on earth?

The last time you'll walk along the beach

Or warm your hands by the hearth.

Whether you love doing something or not,

Wherever you live

Cold or hot.

How do you know the last time you'll have a birthday?

Who you'll get married to,

or if you'll even live that day.

How are you supposed to know all these things associated with living?

You aren't.

Beacause if you did, it wouldn't be living.

And it wouldn't be death.
