I write so I’ll know what I’m thinking
Given only so much on our first day,
then the Villain appears, and starts taking away.
He stops not the count, neither night or day,
Even while we dream, He’s taking away.
The golden hair of youth, the Villain turns to gray,
the strength of man, he too takes away.
So enjoy the pleasures of heart and mind,
for we cannot beat the Villain called “Time”.
