Stolen Time

adapted from alancleaver_2000 via Flickr

Time stolen never to return
How to cope is what we must learn
Moments lost with those we love
For the things we put above
The things that should have meant the most
And now those times are but a ghost
But was time stolen or just misplaced
For we are guilty of our own waste

Time Slipping Away

Time slips slowly through our grasp
The sands that fall we can’t clasp
The hourglass shows clearly
That all we have held dearly
Will soon join the sands below
As all our memories flow
To the bottom and out of reach
No matter how we may beseech
For Father Time to grant us more
Moments with those whom we adore
Time so finite and the end so sure
Feels so cold yet its intent so pure
