So I Will Live On

My better years to the forever have gone
But the fear of death and the love of life wills me to live on
The longest lived human life in time not a long span
So I will live on for as long as I can
For each one of us there's a last night and day
But it won't matter to me where my last remains will lay
And whether my dead body is buried or to ash me they do burn
To Mother Earth I am destined to return
Mother Earth who feeds us our remains do receive
But for her dead children she never does grieve
It has been many years since I was a young boy
But the great gift of life something I still enjoy
So I hope to live on for as long as I can
And to die without pain as a very old man.
