As I Am Now You May One Day Be
 





As I Am Now
You May One Day Be





Remember Man as you walk by
As you are now, so once was I

As I am now, so you may be
Prepare for death and follow me

Author Unknown





Within the graveyard spirits weeping
Weeds blanketing souls of spirits sleeping
Stones stands silent in lack of caring
Of who has touched this world before


Forgotten names . . . forgotten souls . . .
Forgotten lives with pasts untold



Beneath the moon of Hollow's Eve
The spirits cry for lives unseen
Upon this earth once fell their footfall
Now silent in their world of endless dreams



Forgotten . . . Gone . . . .
The lives that lived before





Moonlit the night upon the eve
That brings another Halloween


Another year to disrespect
As dares are placed to raise some heck?


Vandals touch forgotten stones
In graveyards where the restless roam
Unkempt ... untouched by human hand
Tis still their final home





Beware the child that takes the bet
To desecrate the graves not kept
Spirits wail and spirits moan
To keep what they now know as home


Tis your curse to one day lay
Beneath forgotten stone?






Remember Man as you walk by
As you are now, so once was I

As I am now, so you may be
Prepare for death and follow me
