and that was how it all began
with fists of gold and lips of sand
a quiet wish, you understand
left people hoping throughout the land.

and I couldn't help wondering why
the liars spoke truth and the truth would lie
the stars fell swiftly from the sky
while life lives, death never seems to die.

and wise men live for years and years
while young women spill useless tears
and children lie awake from fears
that all will perish when 'it' appears.

and moments perhaps may come and go
but silence, quiet, and beauty show
that every moment will live and grow:
a great importance to all who know.
