The Years.

Dark days are upon me...

She's dead.

I look to the future

and i shudder with dread.

The young are all busy,

they've got young of their own,

and i think of the years

and the love i have known.


I don't want to grow old...

To me that seems too cruel.

I don't want to be told

what another loved one is going through.

See, my mind is weary...

My grace and vigour depart,

but now that i've found you

i don't know where i should start...

All over again?

Years and years of pain.


But inside me

love still dwells,

and now and again

my battered heart swells.

Yes, i remember the joy and i remember the pain,

but i'm loving and living life all over again.


I think of the years...

All too few...

Gone too fast...

And i accept the fact

that nothing can last.
