The winds of time will cease to blow, The shining moon will cease to glow, As history comes to an end; Eternity waits 'round the bend. The books and minds of all mankind Will over time, be left behind. What we find important today Will soon not matter anyway. Here today and gone tomorrow, There's no time to dwell on sorrow. Just look beyond the pain and fear; The stormy skies will soon be clear. The great beyond is looming near. Eternity will shed no tear. For when the nearest star burns out, All earthly cares will end, no doubt. So rise above your petty feuds! Know that eternity includes The here and now, all things before, And everything forevermore.
