Let not

The flowers we pass
still in beauty bloom
let us enjoy them
with each passing step

let not the sorrows
of what lays ahead
keep us from the joy
that have we now

can we not enjoy
the flowers that we pass
before this journey ends
and we parted our ways

must the journeys end
sorrows overwhelm
the joys we may have
as we travel on

beauty we may find
together still enjoy
all along the way
if we only but try

let not our eyes
by tears blinded be
that we will not see
all the beauty that there be

let us with joy look
to the world all about us
and the beauty which it holds
if we will but only look

from our sorrows let us turn
think not of journeys and
that we may see all
the beauty and find joy
