One last time for a first encounter

One less moment spent in stasis

 

Forgetting the gales of a distant past

Moving forward into a fresh memory

 

Daily we drift in a circle, never ending its repetition

Seek to break its fragile border, if only for an intermission

 

As the moments stack up, and time slips away

We all begin wishing, for more in the day

But try as we might to slow it down, the time never fails to hit the ground

 

And no matter the course, it falls away

Leaving nothing to chance, and less to say

 

With each and every old new day

We find ourselves, then die away
