Daily we extend our scope of sorrow
as we bear an hour’s burdens
offer tomorrow’s hope with a hand
lift another’s load, lament their suffering
mourn with pain of human sadness
share what joy we can, grieve
our seasons passing, reflect upon
the last melancholy note of all
remembrance past, longings deferred
patient remedy to renew life’s dance.
