I try so hard to comprehend

Why all our dreams are at their end

Or why our future is unclear,

The minds of most too full of fear ?

I thought we’d learned how to behave

To play the hero not the knave,

Accept the truth with open heart

And to define its nobler part.

We look into the mirror blind

What type of image will one find

Does no one see themselves for real

How can this nation ever heal ?

Oh Lord, dear Lord, what have we done

What madness is this we’ve begun ?

It seems the hours just tick on by

While all my days have learned to fly

There is no time for this to last

As days and months have rapid passed

And what began so long ago

Is now approaching its last show.

Wish I knew how the story ends

But I don’t have those kind of friends

I guess I’ll have to wait a bit

To see how all the pieces fit !

Now as for me when I am dead

My ashes will wind up instead

Upon the surface of the sea

Tis such a briny place to be

There float away to foreign lands

And rest at last on distant sands !

Now this has been a journey long

From birth to death, one’s telltale song

As we have been upon life’s road

Each burdened by our heavy load.

It matters not what we have thought

There in this net all have been caught

And so it is that we shall be

A cog in God’s eternity !

My heart is wild, I know the tune

I hear the sound midnight or noon

It echoes sadly aft we start

Before life ends or lives must part !

I hear voices from the past now crying

Drowning my senses with their last sighing

Alas, for all about me are dying !

Oh what a waste all wars must be

God’s lesson in futility

The silence of the gentle folk

Whose fear these fatal times invoke,

Oh would that they might wish away

The consequences of each day.

Like the last prayer the dying said

These final words ere they are dead

With all the faith they place in them

Next year dear Lord, Jerusalem !
