A time of light, a time of dark
or a time when colors do their part?
To paint the world in shades of grey
doesn't fit the world we see today!
Yesterdays never a subtler hue
than the world the Gods bequeathed to you...
To live in fear and live in gloom
or see the world beyond your room,
with days that glow and moons that beckon
and glorious ages beyond your reckon.
Number not the times you've had,
the times your glad,
the times your sad
the end will find you all too soon
for we all dance that pipers tune!
Whether we dance or whether we pray
never forget to "seize the day!"
Count not what limits tomorrows
miring time with its constant sorrows,
we're not tied to the turning wheel,
although that's sometimes what we feel...
Its over and over the pattern again
yet always back to where we begin.
So savor the joy or wallow in pain,
bask in the sun or soak in the rain,
its all been put here just for you,
and theres no mystery in what to do!
Remove regard for limitations!
Worry not for destinations!
Theres no need for hesitations!
Life comes not in daily rations!
We're on a sea with no further shore,
for an endless moment and nothing more,
so love this place and love these friends,
because loves the thing that never ends,
and if some day the whole world shatters,
that we've loved is all that matters.
