Song - Oodgeroo Noonuccal

Life is ours in vain
Lacking love, which never
Counts the loss or gain.
But remember, ever
Love is linked with pain.

Light and sister Shade
Shape each mortal morrow.
Seek not to evade
Love’s companion Sorrow,
And be not dismayed.

Grief is not in vain,
It’s for our completeness.
If the fates ordain
Love to bring life’s sweetness
Welcome too its pain.

Oodgeroo Noonuccal (1920 - 1993) Australia
