I can not give up
For there are shores left unseen
Foods yet to taste
And the wind on a mountainside to feel.
It is not yet goodbye
For there is a love out there waiting
Oceans to cross
And wonders to explore .
My time can not be over
For the air in my lungs still longs to sing
My feet wish to dance
My soul longs to be freed.
What torture is this then
Trapped in stagnation
A body decayed
With a mind held captive by a wondering soul?
I will not surrender
For my time has not yet come.
Then suddenly I wonder
How many have passed
With life left undone?
The must still be time,
To steal a kiss from the moon,
To taste the wine of every shape and kind
And learn to laugh in a hundred languages too.
Grant me please goddess
A pass to return again,
Should this life suddenly come to its abrupt end.
How many times before have I made this request?
How many times more until I finish my quest?
