In Life I Have Been Lucky

Though the hair on my balding head is silver gray
In life i have been lucky it does seem this way
My health is quite good and i hope this is how it will stay
For as long as i live till my last night and day
Though success as a stranger to me does remain
It cannot be said of me that another person's loss has become my gain
Since i never did have much money to my name
Suppose i will die as a stranger to fame
From some of those i went to school with the breath of life gone
I feel lucky at my age to be living on
Though i too have lived through moments of inner strife
If i die tomorrow i will have had a good life
Though i hope to live on for as long as i can
And die in my sleep without pain as a very old man.
