Time For The Time


You've taken just about everything
From me.
Your hands just never seem to grasp
The life I long to be.

You passed before
But just ignored
The dreams I chanced to see
Oh! Oh! Time!
You're looking backward
From eternity.

So smile upon me
Time, my friend,
I hope my fear of losing you
Will far be gone by then

And, just maybe,
One day
You'll pass by me again
And shed some life
Amid your hurried searching
For an end.
