FAREWELL MY FRIENDS [The Sentimental Case of Parting Company]:
…nothing lasts forever.
The only constant we know, Pilgrim, is change.
It is through change that everything stays the same.
I love music, you see.
I now dedicate to you all my dear and beloved friends a wonderful song by Andrea BOCELLI and Sarah BRIGHTMAN.
Listen to it, Pilgrim.
It is entitled ‘Time To Say Goodbye’.
There is a time for everything.
There is a season for everything.
A purpose for everything under the Heavens.
A time to join a political party and a time to leave it.
I selflessly gave all that I had to give.
The assignment God gave me to perform, that is help another human being on a given task, has now been accomplished.
It is over.
It is finished.
It is now time to say goodbye!
Farewell, my friends. Farewell.
…we are Pilgrims on a journey…
I have got to go now. Take my hand. We have got other lives to touch…other services to render…
We are done here.
…though the platforms may vary, our service to humanity in His honour will remain the same…emission of light is our calling…
Goodbye, my dear and beloved friends. I will miss you.
…and I thank you.
I have got to go now!
..Pilgrim, ‘Dare To Live’. That is another song by Andrea BOCELLI but this time with Laura PAUSINI. Listen to it.
The journey continues…
