Good Souls Never Perish
There was a time, when I was in dark. There was a time, when I was abased. There was a time, when I had no power in my words. At all these times there did live Good souls; To wipe my tears, and abscond my fears, To smile which joyed me for a mile. They do live, the good soul who will never perish.
