"Live you life for it goes by fast" me

Why do you cry child? For I am in a better place,
Don’t weep for the long forgotten past,
Live your life to the fullest, for it goes by fast,
Death is something that we must all face,
The future is yours to govern, but it’s a delicate lace,
Unfold the tapestry of the fates and let the memories last,
For in the play you pick and choose the cast,
The flame of life is waiting for you to embrace.
Find someone that will hold you dear,
That will guide you through the fear of the night,
And soon your horrors will disappear,
The years of the woven silk take to flight,
But to stop time, they will persevere,
To keep your love in the forever glowing light.

The author's comments:
This poem was written for me and my grandmother. She passed away about 8 years ago, but I still believe that she looks down on me and smiles. When she died, I took it really hard because she was my best friend. This poem is about how I imagined my grandmother looking down at me when I was that young little girl with tears streaming down my face and saying that I must live my life because every single moment counts.
