Thirty-five is later in the morning.
Hours walk more slowly 'cross the sky.
In every word there is a self-assurance
Resting on the rock of past endurance,
The clarity that's long since settled why
Yet knows that change will come with little warning.

For you there's still no need for death insurance:
In work there's truth enough to reckon by.
Values bend like trees when it is storming:
Each holds its ground but cannot keep you dry.
