You had to go

I so much loved you;
But your own time came to go;
I couldn’t stop you;
No one could stop you;
I heard the bell ring for you;
And knew you had no choice,
But to go;
Only one door was opened to you;
You had to go in;
And you went in;
You did what was required of you;
You did your duty;
You did nothing but your duty;
You had to go;
Fare thee well!

Which do you love?

When Saturday comes
Some say ‘Hurray!’
For it’s a time to stay off work
And stay at home,
Or go enjoying;.
Meanwhile, some sigh;
For it’ll be a while
Before they return to the work they love.
Are you of the first or second kind?
Do you look forward to your week-end
Or to you working week?
Do you love your job,
Or your holiday?
Do you do your job with joy
Or you do it as a duty
From which you must run away
At the least opportunity?
