Differences

Between Hard Work and Struggling
Between Anger and Hate
Between Pain and Suffering
Between Destiny and Fate
Between Joy and Happiness
Between Sorrow and Sad
Between Alone and Lonliness
Between Have and Once Had
And Lo I've discovered a difference so vast
Between what I know and what feeble words say
That life in the Future and life in the Past
Mean nothing at all in the face Today
For today I am with you, today we are here
And nothing so lovely as when you are near
