Philip Charles Brown


When


When time was my friend, I'd lollygag and laze
It was all in front of me I had so many days
When time never entered the passing mind
And I thought I had all the time
When....

When lines were not on my face, just spots
And I was handsome in my ways and looks I had not lost
When fat had not encircle me, and I was young and tight
And muscular I was not and never ventured into fight
When....

When all my loved ones were there and all were counted true
And I had not found anyone and not thought of you
When loss was something that had never shown
And sharing caring was in abundance and death was never known
When....

When I found love and shooed it away, only to find again
And I was tender in the time and my goodness you could depend
When I gave you and you gave me and we just shared and shared
And I thought I would always be the one who always cared
When....

When I realized that looking back was not the way
And I was not back there but here today
When I knew that mortality would grasped my breast
And take me down into the Death
When....
