A short poem

time ticks and the dark earth waits
so “carpe diem” before it’s too late
love in your soul? then shout it out loud
there’ll be no more time when you’re wrapped in your shroud.
fill to the brim your treasure trove
with music and life and the ones you love
words of love that remain unspoken
will lead to a heart that’s a little more broken
no-one knows their sell by date
so “carpe diem” before its too late
