Time...steadily it goes by.
With it goes the laughter.
With it goes the tears.
With it goes the anger.
With it goes the fears.
Time...no matter what, it continues to go by.
We say goodbye to winter, as we
Watch the solemn snow melt away.
We say goodbye to spring,
feeling the gradual warmth of the sultry sun on our faces all day.
We say goodbye to summer, as we watch the leaves change their colors.
We say goodbye to Fall...but that's not all.
Time...it gives and it takes back.
Yet, how beauteously it gives again.
It gives nostalgic memories.
It gives daughters and sons,
who give us grandchildren to hold dear.
It gives stories told by our elders,
passed down to our young.
It gives family gatherings...
Enveloped in our minds and hearts combined,
never to be taken away by time...
Time...it gives us a multitude of love, to absorb and revel in the now.
To hear a song so beautiful, that it makes you cry.
To place your arms around that person, who's arms around you feels so good, you never want to let them go.
To look into the eyes of your child and still see what you saw from the first moment they came into this world....but so...this is what you should know...
Time....live in the now.
Grasp each second, and hold it there for as long as you can.
For once it escapes, you can never get it back.
Embrace those you love, as if it were the last you will see them.
Time...we think we have so much of it...think again.
Time...a necessary evil. A remover.
It takes away our youthfulness.
It takes away our friends.
It takes away our outer beauty.
It takes away our kin.
It takes away the innocence and purity, slowly drifted into the past.
Oh...no...that never did outlast.
