You are always young when someone dies

You are always young when someone dies,
always the child by the father at the horses betting cents to his dollars on.
But fortunes cost in memory when he dies.

The boy begins with dollars to his fathers loss,
and light begins at loss, fathers come with sons.
Do you know those good days as a child that lasting into?
How will I last, who will remember?
I will last, will last, I will make mention…
