Who are we to say
Who goes and who will stay?
For whom does the bell toll?
For what unlucky soul?

The day started kind
Gentle to my mind
But now I feel the strain
Of someone else's pain.

A mother without son
By the dawnings done
The Master cries in pain
As another one is slain.

Who are we to say
Who goes and who will stay?
Thank God it wasn't you
For whom the bell rang true.

Once I was brilliant, now I no longer shine, but the twinkle in my eye speaks of another time.

RS, sonographers also weep!

Yesterday is history, tomorrow just a mystery. And if today is good to me how could I ask for more?

Were that bell merely a call to recess (not a flip remark). Well spoken RSE. Thanks for looking in on my own as well.
