Immortality


I am blessed, with eternal life,
I have lived through war and strife,
Every month i drink the potion,
The God-given gift, that sets in motion,
The process that, keeps me young,
Keeps age halted, like a jar by a bung,
My wife and i have lived forever,
All family ties we had to sever,
And so we travel, travel the world,
We have seen nations, civilisation unfurled,
We have lived for many years,
Over dead friends, shed many tears,
In a way it is a curse,
For every year it just gets worse,
