Sail or Seize

Guess it wasn’t enough for you to be at that hospital bed 

For you to utter the words, “I’m not ready yet”
I guess Im special because 
I get to walk through the stinging nettles of death
So I know we don’t have much time left 
And while you’re busy straightening all those knots 
The ship is sailing away
Because life just happens that way 
Your tears will be stranded in the lonely night 
Bargaining for the chance to seize that day
