Mortality Is For All

Mortality surely not based on a lie
I too like all mortals was born to die
I feel i'm no different to the cow, dog or sheep
Like them for me there will be a final sleep
How many more Springs will i live for to see
Since the passing of time it is telling on me
Some i went to school with in a town far away
Amongst the deceased in their final rest lay
Though it is going back some three decades in time
It does not seem that long since i was in my life's prime
The Seasons pass quickly and time ticks away
And each dawn brings us nearer to our last night and day
We return to Nature as do the leaves of the Fall
Like the cow, dog  or the sheep mortality is for all.
