DOWN STREAM

Weep not for me when I take
my oar and drift down stream to meet the setting sun;
To me twill only mean the day is done
the kindly current bears me safely on down stream
You bid me stay - to tarry awhile;
What matters if a few days more or less
Of joy or sorrow, happiness or despair;
Fear not the shadows fall across my path;
Love lights the way and I shall safely float downstream.
It is a peaceful land.

Tomorrow's land, to which I go
and yet no idleness is there.
The lessons here imperfect we learned,
and others ___ unguessed are there ma___ plain;
And some day I shall call out to you
and you will hear and answer me;
And then you too will take your oar
and drift to where I am downstream.
