                 Immortals II
If I could define my age to thee
   Just one word Id say  maturity
If I dared dream about my youth
   Its absurdity would be the truth

I have aged   still not enough
   Traces of gray  no meaningless bluff
Of a coming promise  a more royal soul
   That flees from youth to reach its goal

And listened to my heart as it sings
   Of the freedom that eternity brings

But if I am old    how can it be
   A heart so youngs inside of me

Mystery of time how could I know
   That when I age my youth doth grow
To heights mere eyes forbidden to see
   To easy count infinity


And contentedly smile as time strolls by

   It grasps my hand
            
             I touch the sky

Thurman,

This is well done.  I experience the same thing.  I cannot deny the passing time as I look into the mirror...but yet, if I close my eyes I am still young at heart.

Keep the Faith!
