I see the sunlight’s smile
Reflecting on your skin
And gaze at it a while
And drink its beauty in.

And then it’s time to leave;
We walk through light and shade,
And, as on New Year’s Eve,
Our future plans are made.

But there’s no time at all,
And so we don’t invest
In mourning those that fall
Or thinking one is best.

The only thing that’s true
Is being here with you.
