An Old man now

Youth ever flees
My dreams are not gone but I can't sleep
Nightmares crowd my sleeping mind
I can't close my eyes for the secrets I keep
I've been hurt for so long

The world is different than when I was younger
I am so tired and it's too late
My Passion no longer burns, I can't fight forever
I have no hunger for things I'll never have

It doesn't matter, time is the master
I can't change the world or change myself
I am unwilling to go on so long after it is gone
I can't keep trying but my memories are lost
I can't do more you know
There is simply too much cost

Soon my flesh will pass
And my time will end
But I am able to smile
Nothing lasts
And I refuse to be in denial
