 I'm Too Young to Be Old

I search my life and I have to ask myself,
Where have all the years gone?
It seems that inside I'm only twenty,
Trapped inside this aging body.
As time passes and effects the exterior,
The inside still seem so brand new.
I wonder if other people that I contact in my life
Feels the same as I do, I'm too young to be old.

I don't seem to view myself as getting older by the day,
No, I see a freshness within my soul.
A new breath of life sweeps into me today.
I have such a sense of renewal that I wonder if I'm deluded.
After all, I look in the mirror and see the ravages of time.
I see my aging eyes looking back at me questioning my sanity.
No matter how young I feel inside, time has passed out there.
Yes, I have gotten old, but I'm too young to be old.
