Today as I see the sun a sinking
I can see the darkness coming o'er
I can see in my imagination
That somewhere on earth a life is gone.
Somewhere, someone today is leaving
Somewhere, someone is going away
Their life on this earth today is over
For somewhere, someone has gone away.
I thought of all my many friends I've met here
And what they meant to me down here below
But today, some of them now are leaving
And Oh' how it hurts to see them go.
It might be a loved one today that's leaving
Or it could be a friend just down the way
Or it could be a neighbor today that's leaving
And Oh' my dear friend it could be yourself.
So today, don't put off what's important
No, don't forget to kneel and pray
For today your life may be over
And you would be the one that went away.
