I wanna be forever young That the flame in my eyes may burn bright The blood in my veins may flow furious The beat of my heart may stay vigorous And my breath fresh as the scents of east   I wanna be forever young So my dreams may blossom...

I wanna be forever young

That the flame in my eyes may burn bright

The blood in my veins may flow furious

The beat of my heart may stay vigorous

And my breath fresh as the scents of east

 

I wanna be forever young

So my dreams may blossom

And may indulge in the idealism of youth once more

And folly a trifle may afford

But what a pipe dream

For old I am- senile

Wrinkled and doubled over

My eyes rheumy

And hair greying and lusterless

My voice guttural and phlegmatic

And a breath that offends

Potency of youth long gone

Only a shriveled member remains

A testimony of virile past

Forever eclipsed by a lonely vigil

Of amorous longings

O, painful regrets

Of an old gizzard gazing wistfully to the terrible horizon 

Betwixt two worlds

All the while the dark of night banishes sleep

And light of day a terror to slumber

 

I wanna be forever young!
