Youth is fleeting.

Days go by so fast.

Life grows ever shorter.

We begin to waste away.


I want to live.

I want to smile.

I want to love.

I want more time.


I ask for something impossible-

Yet I still want to ask.

Give me a few more moments.

Let me create a few extra memories.


Allow me to hold my mother,

Don't take her away so fast.

I'm begging to smile with my dad,

Please give me more time.


Let my youth last a bit longer.

I want to be able to move,

To laugh with my friends,

And be carefree.


Youth is fleeting.

Days go by so fast.

Life grows ever shorter.

So make the most of it.
