The white hair

I looked into the mirror in despair
And saw a wrinkled worried face!
I tried to shave and comb my hair
My eyes suddenly looked into space!

******

They saw the coming shadow of death
As I coughed but not laughed aloud
Carousely spendthrifting my wealth!
Of my wife and property I felt very proud

******

My ears suddenly heard a wave.
I could hear it ,yes feel it so near
"Look at thyself and remember the grave"
"Didn't you see the white hair here ?"
