If the life that's in between your birth and passing,
Does not contain a spot for giving light,
Then you and all the others who were watching,
Shall fade away from here without a fight.

If you are taken from this world with laughter,
If you fly up to Heaven's skies above,
If you had soul enough to fight long after,
Then what always flies about you is a dove.
