GONE another year—
Gone beyond recall;
Gone its smile and tear,
Gone its joy and thrall.
Vain is now lament,
Naught canst thou efface;
Though thou now repent
Naught canst thou erase.

Dawns another year—
Open it aright;
Thou shalt have no fear
In its fading light.
Live that not a stain,
Live that not a deed
May awaken pain,
May erasure need.
