Can we sleep when we get home?
I want to wait until the morning comes.
To see the leaves all glowing green,
to watch your eyes when they are seeing dreams.
When one is close with a distant thing,
there is no comfort that the near can bring.
If we should all not reach the end,
let us remember how well time can mend.
And sing for weeping riversides when they find they're running dry.
And all the life, you can hear it cry.
All will die with it, sweetly, by and by.
But for now, we can swim across.
Watch how the current takes what all's been lost.
We must push passed dead and drowning men
and learn to leave them in the state they're in.
Ask not what comes after the river ends,
think not what has passed for it can't be again.
