With Hope

They tell me
life is short
Yes, they tell me
life is short
Somewhere near forever
   I'll meet you by and by
They tell me 
Yes, they tell me
life is short
Somewhere near forever
  I'll meet you by and by
The air is filled with rockets
Yes, the air is filled with rockets
Somewhere near forever
 I'll meet you by and by
Watch as the lights shine
Yes, watch as the light shines
Somewhere near forever
 I'll meet you by and by
How long will you love me
Yes, how long will you love me
Somewhere near forever
 I'll meet you by and by
Dancing beneath the willowsr 
Yes, dancing beneath the willows
Somewhere near forever
 I'll meet you by and by
The time to sleep has come
Yes, the time to sleep has come
Somewhere near forever
 I'll meet you by and by
Yes, somewhere near forever
 I'll meet you by and by

    this one is really great, Matt. It has this lyrical dreamy quality to it, a bit different from your others. Glad you are reading my book. I have read a bit of yours. Sorry to say, I am saving most of it for a rainy day. I think you have more time than I do. How can it be? We are both ESL teachers!!
