The World Is His Home

I know i have lived most of my time span
But i will cling on to life for as long as i can
For there is so much of the World i have yet to see
The lust of the wander still living in me
It was lust of the wander that brought me far south
Of the home of the badger and brown river trout
And though the passing of time has left me looking gray
The lust of the wander still in me today
I want to live life as a healthy old man
And travel to Asia and visit Japan
And see the pyramids and the hills of Rome
Then people may say of me the World is his home
Though my best years in life to the forever gone
I do enjoy living and i want to live on.
