You do not know the hour

You do not know the hour

Here today, gone tomorrow

I think of this as I reflect on this trip

A year ago, it was

But our friend has left us

Not too suddenly perhaps

Yet we cannot say that we had expected it

Yes, we do not know the hour

We are here today, like flowers in full bloom

Then we are gone, ashes in urns

What then are we to make of life?

Live it

Live it to the full

One eye on the world and one into the future

The future that could be yours tomorrow

In an instant

All will be over

Then why fight and quarrel

Why hit out and be so unkind

Life is short, short, short

Live it like you have only today.
