All the things we ever knew
will not last for long.
But if I could have just one thing last
it would be a song.
I rejoice in the gift of music.
For it has given me such hope
that after I'm gone and life goes on
I'll be able to cope
with anything that I can't foresee
that will be able to soothe my soul.
And all the sounds beautiful to hear
will once again make me whole.
