Our Younger Years Go Quickly

Our younger years go quickly as does our lives prime
And eventually we all become victims of time
And time as we know for anyone does not wait
You will not keep death from your home by locking your door and your gate
The Reaper of Lives to anyone not a friend
One that most people do fear why otherwise pretend
The great gift of life is such a wonderful thing
And of the praises of death you will not hear many sing
The same for every woman as for every man
Time strips everyone of youthful elan
And that the longer you live the sooner you will die
Is based on fact and fact never lie
The old bloke his better days are in the long gone
But he says he loves life and he wants to live on.
