The older I get
The less people to call
Is it by choice

My spirit’s downfall


The older I get
The less then to care
A life once so pointed

With little to share


The older I get

Beginning to end
The ones that stood by me
The ones I called friends

The older I get
Meat gone from the stew
The faces just names
Of those I once knew

The older I get

Doors lock from within

A constant reminder
The blaming now stings


The older I get
The less people to call
No sand in the hourglass

 —last curtain to fall
