"Soon Enough" A Reflection On The End of Life

Here are the lyrics to one of our singer-songwriter son's most recent songs, one that especially touches me at a stage of life in which more and more of our loved ones, like beautiful and beloved leaves, fall to earth.

SOON ENOUGH
Brad Yoder

1. A leaf has turned from green to gold and red,
Hanging halfway between alive and dead,
She saved her brightest colors for the end,
She'll join the rest soon enough...       

2. I know that you're afraid of what's to come,
I know, because you're not the only one
But today might be as perfect as we'll get,
If not quite yet, then...            

Chorus 
soon enough, the sun will set,
the night will fall, we'll take our rest,
we haven't read the ending yet, but soon enough.

3. Pressed between the pages of a book,
Is a love I tried to save, that never took,
Wax paper to preserve my best intent,
That's how it went, but...        

Chorus 
soon enough, the sun will set,
the night will fall, we'll take our rest,
we haven't read the ending yet, but soon enough.
soon enough, the light will dim,
until the sun comes round again,
and every song becomes a hymn, soon enough.
