Forever Young
poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2010


Will you light me up, when I die
Or in a grave, will I lie
Will I vanish, fade away
Or will I see the end of days?

Will the world follow me
Or me the world, unseen at sea
With the flow, above the stream
Will my life be just a dream

Or a truth, distant fact
Will my soul give great impact
Upon the world that I surround
Or will my land just crumble down

Will a momument stand when I'm gone
Will I in hearts and heads last long
Or will I fade in peace and shade
And drift away from humankind

Without a trace, or grace in mind
Without a space, or place remind
Of what I was, of where I did
Live my life as just a kid
