On The Approach of Retirement
I have seen the glory of a thousand starsHeard music played at a hundred barsWatched blue waves breaking on a tropic shoreAnd tasted nectar till I want no more.
I have been to where many long to beAnd picked a rose from a hawthorn treeWrote lyrics and received the praisePaced out life’s highway in contrasting ways.
I have loved women, beautiful and warm,Bathed deeply in their effusive charmMet heroes, idols from my youth,Got a fairy’s sixpence for my broken tooth.
I took on the worldLived out my dreamsWatched sport played by international teamsAte sausage in a German townSaw royal monarchs in their regal gown.
I have debated long and hard about this lifeWept sadly for its bloody strifeSupped on honeyed dew and nettle cheeseCast here and thereDid what I pleased.
And now I am aloneWith youThere’s nothing that I would rather doThan stay alone with youWith youAnd stay alone with you.
