As the days go by,
My friends stop saying hi.
The dust covers gold,
This life is getting old.
My work turns to rest,
Past my prime; the best.
People once honored by fame,
Slowly fade and lose their name.
Things go and wither away,
Please tell me why they never stay.
And the thought of being young is so sublime,
Too bad it is past my time.
