Mystery Of Life
The Springs of my life have gone astray
Gold leaves of Autumn swiftly decay
The Bird of Youth has flown away
But then…he was never meant to stay
Winter’s chills have finally sprung
My seasons of life have all been flung
Yet all my songs have not been sung
In my heart and spirit…I’m still young!
LOVE is the answer to life’s mystery
Envy and greed lead to misery
Treat your neighbor, as you would like to be
And wonder of wonders…so will he!
And when the curtains of night are drawn
And death comes to call at early dawn
You’ll leave this earth a better place
You’ve made a difference in the human race.
