THE TWELFTH OF ETERNITY

 TILL THE TREES STOP GROWING,

THE GREEN LEAVES THE GRASS.

TILL THE FLOWERS OF SPRING,

NO BLOSSOMS, LOSE THEIR CLASS.

 

TILL THE OCEANS ALL DRY UP,

THE SEAS ALL FLOW ASTRAY.

TILL THE DEEP AND WIDE RIVERS,

SO FAST, ALL RUN AWAY.

 

TILL ALL THE ANIMALS PERISH,

THE BIRDS AND INSECTS DIE.

TILL EARTHS’ GRAVITY LOSES STRENGTH,

RELEASING THE AIR, INTO THE SKY.

 

TILL THE CHURCH BELLS STOP RINGING,

THE DEVIL FORGOTTEN TO HATE.

TILL THE GOLDEN ROAD TO HEAVEN,

THE LORD, SADLY CLOSES THE GATE.

 

TILL THE SUN FAILS TO SHINE,

THE STARS ALL BLINK OUT.

TILL THE MAN IN THE MOON,

LEAVES HOME, HIS FACE A POUT.

 

TILL THE UNIVERSE CEASES TO EXIST,

THE GALAXY JUST AN EMPTY HOLE.

TILL THE TWELFTH OF ETERNITY,

I’LL LOVE YOU, WITH ALL MY SOUL.
