Time  to  Pass  The  Torch

It's  hard  to  think  of  the  future,
When  most  of  your  life's  in  the  past,
When  your  living  on  borrowed  time,
Sands  running  through  the  glass  fast
It's  time  now  to  be  thinking  on
The  torch  that  we  must  pass

Yes  we've  gained  a  lot  of  knowledge
Along  the  way, we've  made  our  share  
Of  mistakes  too, we've  forged  through  
Many  battles, won  most, but  lost  a  few

So  now  this  old  torch, we  will  pass
Along, to  the  young  ones  now  who'll  
Carry  on, and  if  by  chance  they  should
Lend  an  ear, some  words  of  wisdom  we
Can  impart, if  they  will  only  listen
With  their  hearts.
