Before it’s too late

Before it’s too late

“Do it, do it now” said the old, “before it’s too late”
“There’s time” said I, “there’s time yet”
“No” said the old, “do it now, now before it’s too late”
“Yes, yes” said I

I had time, lots of time, so I thought
And I did do some, but not all.
And the some was good.  But some I did not do
I did not say things I should have said
And I did not do things I should have done
And now it’s too late

And now I am the old
And I say, “do it, do it now before it’s too late”
