    I miss the days,
    I could run and hide within the fields,
    Swim the sparkled rivers and catch the mountains for a view.

    I see the ways,
    Your love for me, frees another's binding,
    But I've only eighty summers to see,
    Eighty winters, springs and falls...
    Til I sleep away, slip away,
    To the abyss, the unknown.

    My heart aches, knowing that I cannot
    Stay alive forever.

    I'll watch us change and fade away,
    Oh, Mother Earth, won't you let me stay?
