Life is Long and Time is Short
A star falls from the sky and into your hands.
Then it seeps through your veins and swims inside your blood and becomes every part of you.
And then one day, far from now, you will have to put it back into the sky– and that will be the most painful thing you’ll ever have to do.
But for now, what’s yours is yours. Whether it’s up in the sky or here in your hands, it’s real.
You’ve got this life and while you’ve got it, treat it well and gently.
Don’t think too much about making life better for those who don’t care. Simply take what is good and make it better. Make your life the best, for yourself and those who love you.
Kiss like you only have one moment. Hold someone’s hand like you will never see them again. Look into a person’s eyes like they’re the last person you’ll ever see; watch your children sleeping like there’s no time left.
Every rose loses its bloom. When the time comes that we become that star again, a drop returning into the vast ocean, you will look at yourself and see you were suddenly more beautiful than you ever were before.
