Oh, God, let me live knowing I am human living a terminal life and there is not one second I will get back. Let me give life in each second...knowing I'm dying...and I can take nothing with me...but I can choose what I leave behind...

I just read Psalm 39 today, and this is in it, starting at verse 5... or 4... not sure which, and it seems to fit with this post:

"Make me grasp, Adonai, what my end must be, what it means that my days are numbered; let me know what a transient creature I am. You have made my days like handbreadths; for you, the length of my life is like nothing. Yes, everyone, no matter how firmly he stands, is merely a puff of wind. Humans go about like shadows; their turmoil is all for nothing. They accumulate wealth, not knowing who will enjoy its benefits."
(Complete Jewish Version)
