When the years take my youth,
When age takes my last tooth.
When wrinkles cover my face,
When I look back at my younger days.
When my eyes look down,
When of age is the crown.
When my strength is no more,
When my arms become tired and sore.
When my posture isn't tall,
When A simple step causes a fall.
It's then that I will smile,
And look back at the many travled miles.
