Will Anything Live On? - Poem by Albert Maier

As I push onward
Along the pathway of life
I sometimes wonder
How we'll end this world wide strife.
I shall work till
The last milestone in my road
Will anything we've done live on?
The slope is downward
It seems to lengthen my stride
The years pass quickly
As pushed by a windswept tide.
Time won't stand still
For last minute correction
That something I've done lives on.
Oh years were full
As my jobs I followed through
Time and again help
Was given by friends true blue
My world was great
Gave me a taste of its best
Grateful mem'ries will live on.
