The End… a song

Senior couple standing in a wheat field at sunset

THE END

How will I feel when the world stops turning?

I will see it in your eyes.

A long-cast shadow on a lonely road

In the end – it’s no surprise.

Loving hands, oh, they reach out to hold me,

But when you’re at the end – it’s the end.

Mmm… How will I know when the world stops turning?

When the time has come, my friend.

 

He was her prince and she his princess

A picture-perfect pair.

He never saw the car that hit him.

She was left in her despair.

Rainy day and a funeral service

The irony in her eyes.

How can she breathe another breath?

How can she say, goodbye?

 

How will I feel when the world stops turning?

I will see it in your eyes.

A long-cast shadow on a lonely road

In the end – it’s no surprise.

Loving hands, oh, they reach out to hold me,

But when you’re at the end – it’s the end.

Mmm… How will I know when the world stops turning?

When the time has come, my friend.

 

He held her hand, and she weakly smiled,

As a tear ran down his face.

70 years of the perfect friendship.

A marriage blessed in grace.

One last breath and she was gone.

He continued to hold her hand.

One last prayer and he passed, too.

With the heart of a loving man…

 

How will I feel when the world stops turning?

I will see it in your eyes.

A long-cast shadow on a lonely road

In the end – it’s no surprise.

Loving hands, oh, they reach out to hold me,

But when you’re at the end – it’s the end.

Mmm… How will I know when the world stops turning?

When the time has come, my friend.

How will I know when the world stops turning?

When the time has come, my friend.
