Why Do We Live? Joshua Philipp August 20, 2012 Poetry By Joshua Philipp Just as flowers fall, so shall we all What meaning to find before time makes its call To love and the spring Softly we’d sing Then what is left, for to dust turn the memories of all. Yet there was a time, so long ago When troubles and cares, I would care not to know And I would sing And I would dream In innocent joy that still whispers its call to my home.
