All Our Life We Are Losing Our Lives As We Are Living Them


ALL OUR LIFE WE ARE LOSING OUR LIVES AS WE ARE LIVING THEM

All our life we are losing our lives as we are living them-
Already today who I have been on this day
Is not-
There is not a single day of all my many years
That I truly fully remember -

Our memories are small vestiges only
Of the lives we have lived-
How little then of all my life will be lost
When I die
For already in the time of my life
Most of my life has already gone-
