We All Go Home

When the last eulogy has been spoken
And the final song is sung
When the rose as a farewell token
Is laid upon old or young
When the tears and whispered comforts
Have helped to soothe us some
We turn toward the exit
And we all go home

Tall and short, blonde and brunette
The young and young at heart
The quick, the slow, the in-between
Eventually depart
In mini-vans, Mercedes-bens
Pick-up trucks for some
Buses, taxis, cars of all kinds
We all go home

All but the one who rests in the ground
And soon will return to dust
But his soul will move on eternity bound
As every soul someday must
To meet with the deeds that we have done
No more this earth to roam
In the land beyond the rising sun
We will all go home
