When I was a little child

I used to get bored with classes
I never knew schooling is for a while
Until I graduated

When I was a young man
I used to have a lot of friends
I never knew friendship is for a while
Until I was left alone with my thought

When I was older
I was always in haste to finish the day’s job
I never knew work is for a while
Until I retired

Now I’m at old age
When the bone is weak and strength is no more
Then I realize
All that we do in life is just for a while

So, while you sojourn life in earth
Bear the little burden
Enjoy the much excitement
Because life itself is just for a while
