I’m told and I know that:
When I’m gone, the sun will still shine,
The birds will do sing and fly like gravity is not a thing.
I know that time will go on, second to second
And all that was, will no longer be mine
Oh it’s sad to know that when I’m gone
All my memories will go with me into the ground
Into the depths of darkness, I haven’t yet been
A terrifying thought, the memories I didn’t create covered by a mound
Never to be seen
How will I live on?
Through a tree I plant today that will stretch branches like arms to the sun?
Through the shade it will give a man or beast from the blaze?
And its flowers offering sweet nectar for the honey, a bee will make you
But I’m worried if you’ll realise it
If you’ll realise that we live on in the passions we had
I’ll still be here in these words I shared
The child’s mind I changed to love a flying bird
The hearts I touched and those I met and loved
I’ll still live even as I’ve flowed with the streams of water
Do you realise we still have more to do?
When I think of time I’m in awe
It never ends but we do, Someday we will soon
If only I can open your mind to loving what you see around you
Touching it and leaving your handprints or paws because,
Time and tide wait for no man…
