far as the sky

close as a wish

we all those sailors

who never caught their fish

far as the sky

close as a wish

we think of the only question

though our poor or our rich

far as the sky

close as a wish

life starts with " why "

days role is to teach

far as the sky

close as a wish

hello equals goodbye

the great wisdom we will reach

far as the sky

close as a wish

the words of anybody die

when he meets the death!
