Dust if You Must

Dust if you must, but wouldn't it be better
To paint a picture or write a letter,
Bake a cake or plant a seed
Ponder the difference between want and need?

Dust if you must, but there is not much time
With rivers to swim and mountains to climb.
Music to hear and books to read,
Friends to cherish and life to lead.

Dust if you must, but the world's out there,
with the sun in your eyes and the wind in your hair,
A flutter of snow, a shower of rain
This day will not come again.

Dust if you must, but bear in mind
Old age will come and it is not kind.
And when you go, and go you must
You, yourself will make more dust
