Close the book and now relinquish the pen

Remember the beginning was unexpected

Destiny surprised you, a predetermined event

Now powerful Fate has brought an abrupt end

No point in holding-on, leave with dignity instead

Where there is will they say there is always hope

So try to look to the future and plan new goals

Cherish memories don’t let them slip away

Don’t be consumed with anger, the pain will fade

Ride through the storm, hold your head high

Be grateful that you’ve had some happy times

Look forward, not back to the rights and wrongs

Go search new horizons and build a new brand

Seize the day, build a new tower, name it, call it Fate
