Or Would You Forget
If it was possible
to stay young forever
Wrinkles would never appear on your face
not need a calendar anymore
Keeping track of time would be a waste.
All the stars in a nighttime sky
You would have time to name each
You could count each leaf on every tree
Because dying time you would
But just think if you became an immortal
of your loved ones would die
Wouldn't tears forever fall from your eyes
would you forget how to cry?
