This Too Shall Pass



“This Too Shall Pass”©
Gary Shulman, MS. Ed.

As sure as the sun will rise once more
and Ella will always have class
as sure as the moon
Will kiss the night
You know
This too shall pass

As sure as the joys of life persist
and continue to amass
and daily miracles
bring tears and smiles
Be assured this too shall pass

To say any more
would be too much
To dwell would be unkind
So go and grab that ring of brass
Be assured this too shall pass
