For My Years Of Life - Poem by Francis Duggan

For my years of life success I cannot show
Though from living a few things I can claim to know
And one is from life we earn what we receive
On such an assumption I am one who believe
Though of luck in living there is such a thing
We need it to live to see another Spring
Young people dying in wars and of disease and in accidents every day
I am lucky to be living though ageing and gray
We never stop learning as some like to say
And from Life and from Nature we do learn every day
We never stop learning till the day we do die
That applies to everyone as well as you and I
Truly knowledgeable people like the wise are few
But every day we live we do learn something new.
