One’s heart grows old and tired too
With oh, so many things to do
Before I reach the end of time
When life will be no longer mine.
I close the book and ask my God
Why life has been so very hard
What can I do to make amends
To family and to my friends ?
I’ve often thought the world we knew
Had little time to guide us through
We each are of small consequence
And leave to God our self defense !
