Before I Die

I want to fly
across the world.
I want to see
leaves of green
fall across the sky.
Before I die,
I want to breathe
care-free air.
I want to be
the ocean breeze
that is warmer
than it seems.
I want to freeze
time. I want
to seize – believe.
I want to rise –
reach new highs.
I just want to live
before I die.
