Asked a Question


One day I shall be asked a question
The answer will remain unknown
And this life as we know it
Shall be a mere existence
To the children of the future

We shall recall the times
When the sun used to gleam
And the doors were left open and free

Let the wind whistle through the trees
And the sky be a lighter shade of blue
Allow the world to appear perfect
With little or no scars

Yes, one day i shall be asked a question
But the what the answer will be remains unknown.

Good-night? ah! no; the hour is ill
Which severs those it should unite;
Let us remain together still,
Then it will be good night.

How can I call the lone night good,
