  • We told our tales as we sat under
    Morning's sleepy sky
    With all the colors of
    The sunrise shining in our eyes

    One, then another
    With a story of yesterday's life
    Or of a lover who had
    Gone in a moment of strife

    No thought of sleep ever dwells
    Upon the wise man's mind
    Some task or audience
    Stealing every moment of his time

    Thus we have learned to live
    While mortal men
    Stand waiting to die
    How can we do what must be done
    In just one short life

    And if you ask
    Then you must know
    If you still doubt
    You should be told
    It was not we
    That made it so
    It was by those
    Who went before

    And there you sit
    Tomorrow's child
    So full of love
    So full of life
    But you must rise
    To meet the day
    Lest you become another tale

    Another tale
