Remember that love might be fleeting,
but your heart will never lie.
If trust and respect are pillars,
then true love never dies.
Remember those who throw their daggers
at another man's pride,
Are often themselves aching
from daggers deep inside.
Remember when parting with money,
help those who can't themselves,
But for the lazy who choose regression,
keep your tithes unto yourself.
Remember to follow a mentor
when following your own true heart,
And when it's your turn to mentor,
be sure to duly impart.
Remember to respect the aged,
whether their minds are sound or not,
For when your years are fading,
you'll want the turn-a-bout.
Remember to be a guiding light
to every youth you see.
And forgive their indiscretions,
Less you forget who you use to be.
Remember to keep your riches
behind a pauper's shield,
And save them for the days
when the harvests refuse to yield.
Take pride in the daily expenses
when maintaining your humble abode,
For ignoring the tiny parcels,
might soon be a pachyderm's load.
May the friends you keep be true ones,
and not selfishly their own.
And the love you show yourself,
to others may it also be shown.
If the path you think you're taking,
is as wrong as you duly fear,
Just trust your inner compass,
for a new path starts right here.
Remember these things together,
in everything you do.
For when the good Lord comes calling,
the world will remember you.
