Life’s requests 2

                                       Life’s requests  2

Long in thought stare sadder eyes
When summers leaves wither and die,
Until the music from out our lost intent
Speak words of life’s request

Expressions hold impressions felt
Over the failing land, our motherland;
And like words spoke once of promises told 
Sound our life’s request

See not the bright tomorrow fare  
Until gone this wearied night,
And the moments held in times resolve 
Are like those of life’s request

This, our time of sun shines breadth
Here in a place our thoughts are bound,
And the music from out our lost intent  
Are like words of life’s request
