The moment’s come to bid goodbye
To all I love ere I should die
For time is swift as we all know
One can’t command it stop or go.
The end is quick, affords no choice
We are adrift without a voice
It matters not the age we are
Or if we’ve traveled wide or far.
The goal is clear enough to see
Just how each one is dear to me
Since all must pass, as is the case
It ‘s still the rule none can erase !
