Time passes like melting snow
The evening's growing dark
Yesterday's dreams lie fallen
Like leaves around the park

The road ahead is hard and long
Few reach the end alone
You gave me hope to carry on
Through the darkest days I'd known

I whisper to the trees
But they're too beautiful to hear
A vain cry into eternity
Dissolved my needless fear

Live not for tomorrow, yearn not for the past
Live only for the moment, it's all that is ours
