I Was A Young Boy

Aharon Amir

I was a young boy and I grew old -

All my youth

In my inheritance

I was a young boy and I grew old -

My future

At my feet

I was a young boy and I grew old -

My loves

With those I hated

I was a young boy and I grew old -

And all my friends

Are dying on me

I was a young boy and I grew old -

I shall count my days

Oh for how long
