Dark shadows, doubts, fears, regrets.
Remorse, sadness, loneliness, emptiness.
Forgetfulness, confusion, and pain, that
all that seems to remain.
Trying to remember when life was so
joyful, loving, youthful and tender
one more time. Those days are long gone
with their warm sunshine and sweet wine.
Old as Methuselah, I may be, but
life is still attractive to me.
Now death’s footsteps I constantly hear.
My heart beats with anxiety and fear.
Everyone that I’ve ever known is dead and
gone, ninety-four years and I’m forlorn.
Just a moment in time I’ve had, compared
to eternity’s stay. So please God give me
just one more warm sunshiny day.
