TELL ME IF YOU CAN

She took me aside and told me
that she doesn’t want to get any older –
this in spite of the fact that she still has a good husband.
She’s moving quite close to one hundred.

Maybe she just wanted to let me know how she feels.
I can do nothing but listen and show her caring.

Perhaps I will set you aside and tell you
that I don’t want to get any older –
this in spite of the fact that I still have good wife.
I am close to hundred my self – but not as close as she is.

You can do nothing for me but listen and show me bit of caring.

So what can I do for you? Tell me of you can.

It’s not always easy to tell what’s needed.
