when we meet again

MAKE WAY FOR TOMORROW (1937; d: Leo McCarey)

We pass our elders and share their woes, but do we wonder where they've been?

Do we think of time immemorial, when magic danced in them?

Or how they once chased after dreams, and found love on the way...

Or what led to this misery, and oh why do they stay?

What enchantments have they at this age, to press on like they do?

Through thick and thin and pain pronounced, they push forth tried and true.

They know that which cannot be known, and know no other way...

To see it through the bitter end, and then another day.
