So let’s not say that time will end,
Instead let’s watch the summer light
Come pouring through the valley leaves,
As if there were no other place.
And let’s not say it passed us by.
The earth beneath our feet is firm:
It stays the same – it doesn’t change –
We touch it, know it, share its pull.
So yes, we’ll simply linger on,
And take our shelter from the rain.
We’ll wait until the wind has calmed.
We’ll wait until the sun returns.
These moments, here beneath this tree,
Mean everything to you and me.
