Has it always been mine since the beginning of my time,

I was born to run, I was born to chase the wind, so i run.

I’ve walked along the shore, my feet wet in the sand,

Holding hands, by myself I stand alone, a man.

There’s been at times much fun, I am not done,

Friends and loved ones vanished as the hourglass runs.

When will it come I ask! this moment, my moment in the sun,

It was yesterday, appeared again today, did I not see,

Tomorrow will I wonder when it is to be as it lives all around me.

I had dreams of a girl once upon a time, she came to visit me,

She came to say hi, for just a moment in time, a moment gone by.

I’ve had a moment in the sun, a moment to run, to chase the wind,

I’ve had a love whom went away with the passing day, she flies.

My journey takes me to a place but who follows behind,

On another day will catch me, slow down to that which may be.

  1. Yes the hourglass runs without mercy or as Kipling puts it ‘ The unforgiving minute ‘ , but he wants it filled with activity I think I prefer your more leisurely pace. Some maintain if we drink fast and deep we get the very best out of our lives but I prefer ‘ what is this life if full of care
    We have no time to stand and stare.’
