As the Night, the Day

Life comes to you in a thousand different ways

There are many things you can do, many parts you can play

Take good care when you choose, for these will guide your way

To yourself be true and it must follow as the night the day

 

There will be mountains to climb, rivers to cross

There could be hurdles aplenty you might need to toss

Keep going keep walking no matter what they say

To your faith be true and it must follow as the night the day

 

There will be memories of the sad and happy part

There will be joy pure and shining stirring through the heart

Take the joy and the sadness – together they will make your day

To your heart be true and it must follow as the night the day

 

There will be love to give, dreams to follow

There will be roses and thorns to the end of the rainbow

When you cannot see the road, forge it your own way

To your dreams be true and it must follow as the night the day

 

[Inspired the by following, from Hamlet, Act 1 Scene 3:

This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man]
