Partial Translation - The Meaning of Life

As always, during tough times in life my muse wakes up and starts singing/dancing/creating... I have been listening to this song by Andrei Makarevich  for the past couple months, and I have always wanted to convey its meaning into English.

It's still a work in progress, but this is what I have so far...

The purpose of this life is that I ought to

With all my strength, my body, soul and mind

To go forth, to love, and do what I am meant to

And never ever leave myself behind.

Don't wait for death to come, don't wonder why -

And up until the end you'll breathe without fear.

The bullet that is meant for you you'll never hear -

And all the rest of them will have to pass you by.

Until next time,
