"While We Have the Sun" as written by and Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn....
Let's take the time to walk together while we have the sun
You never know when temperamental weather's gonna come
And if you want to face the death you're never that far from
Just take a breath and sing to it when all the day is done

So sorry about all the sorrow in your life you'll know
It's true that all the ones you love will someday have to go
And every time you say goodbye you'll hear the trumpets blow
A serenade to the soul, all surrounded by the glow

If you feel all broken 'cause i left you there too soon
Just know that it's not up to you to make the flowers wilt or bloom
And if you think you're lonely then just listen for the tune
Of all the stars i left for you in the chest of the moon

If you want to shake whatever separates you from
The holiness you want to make your life on earth become
Live your life with a compassion you can be proud of
Then let your last breath fade away with dignity and love

Let's take the time to walk together while we have the sun
You never know when temperamental weather's gonna come
And if you want to face the death you're never that far from
Just take a breath and sing to it when all the day is done

    General CommentLove this...
    i think it is from the narrative of somebody who has already died and is talking to the person they love who is still on earth.
    She tells him to live life for everthing it is worth. And not to be lonly because whe will always love him.. She tells him to enjoy life for now, and when the right time comes, he will die too, with a great life of dignity and love behind him.
