When the winds of time cease to blow,
The shining moon will cease to glow.
History will come to an end.
Eternity waits ’round the bend.
All of the books from all mankind,
Over time will be left behind.
What we find important today
Will soon not matter anyway.
Here today and gone tomorrow,
There’s no need to dwell on sorrow.
Look beyond all the pain and fear.
The stormy skies will soon be clear.
The great beyond is looming near.
Eternity will shed no tear.
For when the nearest star burns out,
All earthly cares will end, no doubt.
So rise above your petty feuds!
Know that eternity includes
The here and now, all things before,
And everything forevermore.
