Time Peace

A duet from: bruisedbelly & nottooold2


I rush from morning until night

But when you are in my sight

I really wish time would just stand still

It moves too fast until

Another day has passed

I am reminded my time with you won’t last

Time is on my side

Except when you are on my mind


For when my mind is with you

Time is smoke through an open flue

Gone before I realize

The value of its hidden prize

I despise the clock upon the wall

Its hands my will cannot forestall

Lifetimes in the blink of an eye

The soul’s own window will never lie

Time is but a human measure

Spent with you, life’s truest treasure


If I could stop the sands of time

Perhaps even hit rewind

Would that even be enough time

For your heart and for mine

For what We have become needs infinity

To fully capture the enormity

Of what cannot be contained

By mortal hypocrisy


Is time our enemy or our savior

Will it allow us moments to savor

            For in the end what do we keep              

Time to laugh and time to weep

Do we master time I pray

Or does time master us each day


It marches on I’ve heard it said

An unknown voice within our head

Trudging onward toward the grave

Brutal blows from rod and stave

Yet time can also heal all wounds

But sometimes takes 10,000 moons


In the end there is only time

All our flesh not worth a dime

Enjoy your time, laugh and sing

Your voice a joyous happy ring
