The day has comeTo say farewellTo wish you wellOn your journeyWe have gatheredTo say farewellTo wish you wellOn your journey
Such a short time we haveThat thatJust be happy and smileThis lifetime so shortThat thatJust be happy and smile
Though my heart is cloudedI’m saying farewellWishing you wellOn your journey
Such a short time we haveThat thatShow love and kindnessHonesty and decency
Though my heart is heavyMy only wish isThat we meet againSomewhere up ahead
Your CultureYour LoveYour SpiritYour Good IntentionsHonour and DignityIn your wordThat is allThat really matters
