Live, Cry, Laugh

Live your whole day!
Don't think about your daily worries and cares.
Your present is now;
Your past and future are the phantom that scares.
Let your heart shout -- let it be!

Cry if you must!
Let all your anguish out, and push it away.
Just empty yourself;
You will feel lighter without all of that pain.
Let your heart sing, now it's free!

Laugh if you can!
Just find the humor in your predicament.
Look up at the sun;
Smile at the joy in all of the firmament.
Let your heart laugh, now you see!

Today is day 2700 since my transplant! I wanted to write an update, but this song of my heart, a poem, insisted on making itself heard.
