Day after day, year after year
The world itself is getting older
What scares me the most!
Is that I’m just not getting bolder…
To face what lies ahead
What is yet to come!
For as my age grows
I start losing all the fun
My hairs drop, my knees weaken
My eyes lose all sight
My teeth drop out one by one
And soon I will see a light…
Coming to take me away
From the world that is by now too old
Ready for another adventure
A new spiritual role….
That is what I’m afraid of
And yet we celebrate that one day
Where it’s supposed to be a happy one
But I know what’s coming my way!
I rather just wait for death to come
For it’s inevitable no matter what you do
I just hope I’m going to a better place
Hope to be one of the few…
That will have peace for an eternity
A place to call a new home
Where I will never age
And where I know I’ll never be alone!!
