I Will Always Want More

When I can no longer run or walk well,

I will always want more.

When I see more years behind me than in front,

I will always want more.

When there is more silver than brown in my hair

I will always want more.

When my speech slurs and my hearing dims,

I will always want more.

When loved ones and friends leave my life,

I will always want more.

When I can no longer have a cat in my life

I will always want more.

When my last breath comes and then goes—

I will always want more.
