(Virgo / City of Gentle People)

A Chance


A chance
God have given us
A life to cherish, a life to nourish
A chance to live to its fullest.

A chance to live
Live a beautiful life
With our own free will
But freewill to do good, not evil.

A chance to renew
When our soul is astray
Blinded with earthly desires
To be chaste again before we die.

A chance to love
Like a dandelion, help it grow
And in due time, let the wind blow
Let it be scattered like snow
Tender, fresh as morning dew.
