Your book of life

You carry unseen Your book of life White gleaming pages On which is written Story of your life! Do not bend it Or smudge it Rip no pages Or let not any Falsehood be written Or truth misspelt! On these pages Live the many people Who live with you Make no alterations That may hurt them Or change their cause The house, and the car, Do not go very far, The medals are false, And so the applause, Like a hermit crab’s shell, Will be looted by all, On the last page, Of your story on stage! So in your mortal flight, Let truth be your light, Let not the smoke of passion, Rob you of your reason, Keep the book of life, Clean, correct and nice, When the final moment arrives, You are ready to journey With your unseen book of life!
