That's When - Poem by Samantha Schenk
When the stars all fade, when they darken and die.
When the world we know, just ceases to try.
When our morning star fades to a glow.
When it's all gone, all that we know.
When the world is dark, and there is no life.
That's when we can stop and love without strife.
When the fires all dim, and lights fades to blacks.
When the faithful people give up and turn their backs.
When the buildings collapse, when they crumble and fall.
When no one is safe from evil at all.
This is when we can love, this is when we can thrive.
When the world is gone, we will survive.
But for now, we wait and we rhyme.
Because that's when we can love through all time.
