So Little Of

So little of life's ways of i can claim to know
And of material things for my years i have little to show
But we learn as we live as the wise one does say
With me anyhow it does seem this way
We can only live in the now and the now is today
The past it is dead like a leaf in decay
At midnight this evening today will be gone
And tomorrow will dawn and life will go on
At the doorstep of seventy i feel lucky to be alive
So many to this age not known to survive
What time i have left i want to live in peace
And hope my parting from life is a painless release
With the one who said one only can be the best one can be
I for one only can say i do agree.
