As I was sitting here this morning just staring
at the screen, I couldn't think of anything I
had worth saving. Annette woke up and I asked her.
She felt the same way. So, we thought we'd just drop a note to the people in that future world : )
Now's the time, to make a change.
Just look back, see what we did.
It's not the way, and now's your chance.
Take your children, teach them well.
If you will, they will listen.
Look at us, our time is done,
And we can leave you only this...
We were once where you are now,
and know it won't be easy.
But share your love, with everyone,
and let it spread throughout your land.
Let it flow, into each new day,
for you still have tomorrow...
But we do not.
All the chances that we had,
to feed the hungry, help the sick,
to reach a hand out to the poor.
To live in peace, instead of war,
to give, instead of take.
These are the things we knew
we should have done...
But did not do enough.
Our prayer for you, in your new age,
is one of hope, one of glory.
You're still young, grow up strong,
hold the beauty that surrounds you.
For if you do, you will find
that life is worth the living.
And in it's presence,
with time and care,
Your dreams will come.
Dave & Annette
