When All That You Have Left

When all that you have left is your sense of pride
And you are old and frail and time not on your side
Your better days in life are in the long gone
And only the fear of death makes you want to live on
A last Winter, Spring and Summer And Fall
And a last day and night is ahead of us all
If luck is on our side and good health with us stay
Eventually in time we will fade away
The longest lived human life in real time not a long span
On average a few years more for a woman than it is for a man
Us humans are mortals why otherwise pretend
The life journey we are on does come to an end
Due to your fear of death you cling on to life though time not on your side
And all you have left is your sense of pride.
