We do not know

We do not know,
there’s no guarantee;
anything can happen.

We do not know,
but we are willing to try;
anything can happen.

We do not know,
but we dare to hope;
anything can happen.

We do not know
how things will go
one day to the next;

We’ve never known —
not once before,
throughout our lives;

today is no different:
a mystery
unsolved;

we do not know,
what happens next,
but we can hope.

We we do know,
but we’re willing to try;
anything can happen.

We do not know.
No one can promise,
or predict —

We simply live
one day at a time,
in hope.

We do not know;
no one does.
So fear is pointless.

We simply live
one day at a time,
in hope.

We do not know,
but we are willing to try,
and to trust.

We do not know,
but we are alive
to hope.

We do not know,
but no one does;
life is a revelation.

We only know
each day as a gift
each moment a treasure.

We do not know,
but we believe
and we dare to live

hopefully.
