Can I ever show my children, (If they ever come my way) The beauty of a sunset At the ending of the day? Can I walk into a forest, And surround myself with trees, Yet know that it will remain, For me to visit as I please. I know that I can today Do all the things I’ve said, But when today is yesterday, Will all these things be dead? This problem is enormous As we gradually take heed, So we must fix it quickly, Using words and thoughts and deeds."
