October

It’s in smiles
A lover’s eyes
It’s in joy when it needs no disguise
It’s in fairy tales and lullabies
And stories that hold true.

It’s in hugs,
Apple pies,
It’s in love that grows old and never dies,
These things make me glad to be alive.

We’ll never be able
To treasure life enough.
When death comes,
My heart is overcome.

We’ll never be able
To treasure life enough,
But when death comes,
I start looking up.
 
Little legs,
That sit upon a shoulder,
It’s in blonde curls that won’t be there when she’s older,
It’s in raising up what was raised in us,
Spending Sunday in a pew,

It’s in love,
Love overcomes it all.
It’s in memories of back when we were small.
Falling leaves and clear blue skies,
And all the things we’ve made it through.

We’ll never be able
To treasure life enough,
When death comes,
My heart is overcome.

When death comes,

It hurts,

And I'm not saying it's good to die,

When death comes,

It feels so undeserved,

And I'm not saying it's wrong to cry,

Got to speak,

Speak the truth,

This world could use a lot less strife,

Got to say,

Say this too,

There's a meaning to this movie screen life,


Though I’ll never be able
To treasure life enough,
But when death comes,
I try to find a life that will last,
Life is going so fast,

Life is going so fast.

Dear heart,
Stay sober,
It is only October.
Octobers end, and tired hearts mend.
