A MOMENT IN THE SUN

  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 who 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.
                                     Keith Garrett
