The clock keeps winding down

The clock keeps winding down

Written By Dean Masciarelli

October 16, 2010 (10:01am)

The clock keeps winding down

Like it does for every one

And I’ve been wondering  

If I’ve been running out of time

But the good Lord is the only one

That truly knows the hour and the day 
when my life will come to a final end

I just hope and pray that 
wont happen real soon

Because I still have a 
mountain to climb
and a hell of a lot 
of living that must be done

And hopefully if I am truly lucky
I can honestly live to be the ripe 
old age of one hundred and one
