All Things Must Pass

When the darkness comes down and the black dog bites

If the days seem hard, but much harder the nights

 

When hope is afar and despair all too near

If little is left barring worry and fear

 

If your friends turn away and leave you in pain

When heartbeats are thunder and tears fall like rain

 

If karma has dealt you yet one more dead hand

When plans go awry like a rocket unmanned

 

When nightmares are all that you get from your sleep

If you wake in the dawn and can’t help but weep

 

When your trust in people has crashed on a reef

If a loved one smiles but then kicks in your teeth

 

If you can’t see the point of each waking morn

When you try to be brave, though feeling forlorn

 

If fate cruelly removes that last friendly face

When even from God you are feeling no grace

 

Keep up that chin and your shoulders well back

Hold your head high as you walk down life’s track

 

All things must pass and your pain will too soon

So sing out defiance, or whistle its tune

 

The darkness of death should offer no fears

Before you were born passed billions of years

 

In this life or the next, some peace you will find

So take a deep breath and keep that in  mind
