If life had been longer

Was it the heat of the intolerable summers
or was it my own irritation
that my mind, not for a second could concentrate
on the vast data bank that lay open in excel format
I sat down to count the number of days
those, which had made my life feel special
To my astonishment, I couldn't count more than 10
In these 25 years of my life,
About 9000 days have been wasted away
Alas, I could easily count the special days on my fingers
Life is short, is what I get to hear
A thought that probably makes the whole world shudder
I wonder, what would happen, if at all it had been longer
Without a doubt, there would be more moments of sorrow, agony and pain
all of which would go on like they were a sloth
Indeed, there would be happy moments too
but a little scantier than the ones that are gloomy and blue
Least in number would be the special ones
That not only had to power to make one smile
but could also bring tears to joy to the pearl like eyes
The mantra is not to live each day as it comes
but it is to live each day like there would be no tomorrow
Life is short, I wouldn't say that it is not true
But to make it longer,
"Live every moment
Laugh every day
Love beyond words"
This world would become a better place to live in

Alas, its easier said than done. I think I'll need to put it on my door to see it everytime I enter or exit, until its etched in mind.

Nice read.
