Lest We Not Be Here

Lest we not be here, when it be morrow,
Banish today, all grief and sorrow.
Consider today your last day on Earth,
Dry all your tears, and fill with mirth.

Love with all your heart, love everyone,
From early morn, to setting sun.
Live everyday, like it was your last,
Embark on a wonderful lifelong quest.

And when your suns at last have set,
Many to you will tip their hat.
Remembering how you loved so many brothers,
Is how in the end, you'll be loved by others.

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
