The cruelest price to pay,

to grow old

as you watch me

fade away.


To see each fracture,

each crease,

whilst watching from

the earth beneath.


Do not let me age

before your eyes,

do not let decay

befall the wise.


Take me now

upon your wings

raise me up

to higher things


Show me the stars,

and I’ll show you my heart,

my love for you,

will ne’er depart.
