Who knows how long it will last?

Take the sun.

Take the moon.

Take the things

you’ll no longer see soon

Take the energy

and the beat.

Take the things

that sweep you off your feet

Hold them close to you

and hide them well.

Hold them close

and do not dwell.

For only the things we cannot touch

are what make us feel.

Only things out of reach

make us kneel.

In awe at the beauty of the world.

So take them with you when you can.

Take the memories of the things

that you want to show every boy and girl.

Because at the rate the world is going

who knows how long it’s going to last?
