Speak not the words of wisdom
For true knowledge comes in death.
Speak not the words of romance,
For this heart's true love has left.
Speak not the words of God
For it's the source of too much war.
Speak not the words of anger,
We cannot fight anymore.
Speak instead in humble tones,
Of here, of now, today.
Speak the words of gratitude,
So not to scare away
The finer things you have in life,
Your children, husband, siblings, wife...
Speak as though those very words,
Will be your very last.
