And God asked "Do you really want this?"
And we screamed "Yes...Yes...Yes... and Yes!"
And so He said – we could live forever,
except for accidents and (?) ...We would die...never.
"But, no more children," He said (being wise),
"Too many of you ... if no one dies."
That was many centuries – way back then
when hands were steady -- to hold a pen.
Eyes are dim – can’t even see the light,
no more wars – too old and frail to fight,
no more fun of love and play and lust,
Viagra cannot cure what’s turned to dust,
and as this world grows steady colder,
we live...and live...forever growing older.
We don’t talk - there’s nothing left to say,
inside my mind, I pray and pray,
mayhap an accident may come for me today,
anything – so that I could go away.
Never knowing we would drown in tears,
we wished for everlasting years ...
