When I see the rising moon, It takes me back. A lifetime ago, I watched that moon. Rise behind another hill, So far away, So long ago. That was the dawn T'is twilight now. Where did it go So fast?

When I look up I think of everything that has happened here on Earth during my time here and most of it has been ghastly and horrifying yet we never seem to learn from our mistakes.
