Old Ben

You may be decades past your youthful elan
And close to the end of the average human life span
But for as long as you are feeling mentally and physically okay
And the Reaper of lives is not reaping your way
Feel happy to make the most of every day
Since you will be forever where dead people lay
Old Ben the oldest patron at the local pub he is ninety three
He does love his beer and enjoys the barroom revelry
A great grandfather twenty years ago he lost Kate his wife
He often says for as long as i can i will hang on to life
For his love of life him i can only admire
Though he too will die for death he feels no desire
He wants to live on for as long as he can
And die without pain as a very old man.
