Come taste the wine
Come lose yourself
Taste this time
But keep it well -
Only love it all
With heart and head
For there is no drinking,
After your dead.

Dive and swim
In the amber ocean
See all that you can
In this new emotion -
And embrace it now
Before it's skin sheds
For there is no drinking,
After your dead.

Stand back to back
With yourself again
As your spin and reel
Like a new found friend,-
And have it all
With heart and hands-
For there is no love making,
After your dead.

And today is but a second
If tomorrow you may die
And empty pages glistening
In eternity's lie
And time is buy an essensce
Encased upon the wall
That brings our day of reckoning-
Much closer to us all.

Light the candle
And burn it well
For only time knows
What it cannot yet tell,
Only love it all
With heart and head
For there is no drinking,
After your dead.
