Can I liken life to eternity?
I ask you all this brightly calm morning
Even as things pass by like a sherry
Coming and going as we are ageing
I’m wondering as I look high above
Is this how someday we will all depart?
Yes, day by day, we will go like a dove
But life remains like a beautiful tart
We will fly and soar like the birds on high
Just like we will go, returning to earth
Today let us with gentle love not pry
But let us with great kindness like a firth
Live gently, happ’ly with one another
As we sightsee through life with no anger
