Do You See Yourself Now?
Steven "Screechawk k'Shaya" Marshall
Where do you see yourself in a month?
Do you still see yourself in my arms
Kissing me, holding me, caring for me?
Do you see yourself still falling for my charms?
Where do you see yourself in a year?
Walking along the beach, holding my hand,
Walking ankle deep in water, talking away,
Or even laying on the beach, shifting in the sand?
Where do you see yourself in five years?
Do you see yourself filled with joy and tears on your face,
As I kneel in front of you, ring in my hand?
Do you see yourself besdie me, taking your place?
Where do you see yourself in twenty years?
Do you see us having a house, and each our own car?
How about toys spread out over the floor
For our son or daughter, if we ever get that far?
Where do you see yourself in fifty years?
Do you hear scampering little feet,
The feet of the grandkids come to play?
Do you see us play til we're tired and beat?
Where do you see yourself in seventy-five years?
Do you see yourself by my death bed
As I speak my last breath, "I love you", and close my eyes?
Do you see yourself crying your eyes out as I lay dead?
Where do you see yourself in seventy-six years?
Will you tell how I lived, and tell it to all?
Will you pass your wisedom, and all we learned together,
Until that faithful day when you answer God's call?
The future is coming, the future is near
What the future holds is quite unclear
What I do know, what I know is true
Is all that matters is now, and now I love you.
