For those who are not here
let's light a candle,
a candle for our deepest fears
and all the obstacles we can't handle

Let's talk to the gods or God
In the form of prayer, hymn or a song
Let it be revealed to us
Where we went wrong

Why is it that so many lives are lost
When eternal life is what we seek the most
Why is there an angel of death
Waiting for somebody's last breath

Peace and harmony is what we need
A lovely quiet life indeed
but things never go our way
Today could be our last day

Let's hope the gods or God will keep us alive
Despite the challenges we shall survive
Let's hope today marks the end of our mourn
Let's light a candle for those who are no more
