You Say, I Say

There Is No Life

As I lie here
looking at my dreams

There is no life
in them it seems

Their appearance is dreary
with a colorless feel

And their every importance
it seemed to steal

With no light there
‘it was eerily dark

And no fire inside
glowed with a spark

Careful of those things
that you hope for

Nothing on this earth
we should so adore

All of those things
for which we pray

Should be nothing we
regret on judgement day!
