We’re saddened by time progressing,
In many ways the world is regressing…
Getting darker in spirit,
Every day you hear it
As one or another hero’s been caught messing.
We look for the future to come,
Remembering lost loved ones…
We try to go on
Dawn after dawn,
With hope that sometimes is done.
So many older folks have died
This year that we’ve been occupied…
With cherishing the few
Who muddle through,
Or at least we can say that we’ve tried.
For those who believe there is hope,
Not depending on booze or dope…
Our Lord saves
Through all high waves,
And givies us the joy to cope.
