People resting people sleeping people passed away

people resting sleeping away

all over the country

we bury them each day


no longer here there part was yesterday

they are our history 

which made us today


there thoughts there wisdom

there words they did say


are our begginnings

our future our present day


we must not forget them

what they started

we must finish in our day


before we become part of history

and yesterday  in our own unique way


we are all here on this stage

and we all have a part to play


we may come back again

in one life form or another

and continue our work another day

in another role in another part

of lifes grand evolving play


of people living people sleeping

people who have been and passed away
