Life is like a vapor
On the side where you remain
Forever is where time goes on
Filled with joyful, timeless days
Please don’t let the tears that glisten
Stay upon your face too long
Instead remember the time we had
And make tears give way to song
Goodbye is not the message
I would want to leave for you
Rather, what I want to say is,
I will see you soon.
I am quite alive, you see
And waiting here for you
So, please live your life with joy and love
Until you are timeless too
We will laugh again together
When life will have no end
No, this is not goodbye at all
It is, I will see you then.
