the shadow of the mountain
chases me across the range
and I see the clouds coming
but I know where I am going
and I have just enough energy
to keep the momentum
I see the
sparrows fly
I am not giving up
I am not getting away too soon
but I need the challenge
in my life anyway
and I have only so many minds who
will miss me when I pass from this earth
and the place I rest will be
where I am right now going
after all, I can only
keep it
on course for so many years
my dear
