Life’s challenging at only thirty-three
But if I ever live to be one hundred
I hope my friends will still remember me.
I sometimes ask our friends with us today
“We never drank or smoked,” they say so proudly
“And ne’er to God did we forget to pray.”
And are you glad you’ve made it all this way?
“My wife’s one hundred too,” said one good man,
“My love for her grows stronger every day.”
The wisdom starts to overtake your head
The things you know, the things you’ve done
The love that you have spread!
It’s something only those who’ve been there know
But if I ever live to see one hundred
I’ll cherish every day until I go.
