If there is a world in October of 2020, 

I have festivities to attend.  

If there is a world in October of 2020, 

I hope to see the lake 

and the distant line.

If there is a world in October of 2020, 

I want to see trees grow in my garden.

If there is a world in October of 2020, 

I need to breathe the air 

that is truly mine.

If there is a world in October of 2020, 

I hope to see my friends once again.

If there is a world in October of 2020, 

I want to wander through 

the familiar streets.

If there is a world in October of 2020, 

I need to be serious about my tales.

If there is a world in October of 2020, 

I have a heart for listening to 

its tender beats.

If there is a world in October of 2020, 

I want more trust to govern the world.  

If there is a world in October of 2020, 

I need it to be better then, 

to avoid the fall.

If there is a world in October of 2020, 

I have a sky to admire, day or night.

If there is a world in October of 2020, 

I hope there is no sadness 

for me to recall.  

If there is a world in October of 2020, 

the message is simple one to send, 

If there is a world in October of 2020, 

time for us is only what soils may lend.
