Echoes of Life

O’ I ponder, ponder, of yond rich skies
of that faint  weary life that's passed me by 
beyond the echos of  shattered dreams
of a life, or lives that should have been;

tis’ a certainty that life evolves.

through the meandering brooks of long ago
of endless desires that flows from soul to soul
and swelled of virtue in brave and merry hearts
their resonating echos call and call;

tis’ a certainty that life evolves.

O' listen! listen! though faint but clear
whispers calling both far and near
as the radiant moon drift across the open seas
as mighty gales rustle and shiver in the rows;

tis’ a certainty that life evolves.

memories long forgotten heretofore
that seem to be nestled quietly there 
yet swiftly drift to lands of ancient lore
And here and there a spark of radiant light;

tis’ a certainty that life evolves.

like ancient treasures buried deep
and rushing clouds beyond my reach
I strove for life with all my might
and set my mind, its final course;

tis’ a certainty that life evolves. 

O’ I ponder, ponder, of yond rich skies
of that fain weary life that's passed me by 
beyond the echos of shattered dreams
of a life, or lives that could have been;

tis’ a certainty that life evolves.
