We Hope

We hope
In the end
After we've gone
Will it matter who's there
When we're no longer here
We wonder how many will gather
As a hearse leads our procession
Outsiders will take a head count
Determining the measure of our worth
Truly it's those who're there who care
We'll live on through our deeds and children
Truly it's those who're there who care
Determining the measure of our worth
Outsiders will take a head count
As a hearse leads our procession
We wonder how many will gather
When we're no longer here
Will it matter who's there
After we've gone
In the end
We hope
