You were clockwork, in my day
Rare, in being uniquely made
Your longevity, wasn't meant to stay

Many springs have sprung
Things have become undone
The hands of time, now gone

As the tolling of the iron bell,
Through my hands, time fell
Without a future left to tell

A numbness is all that I feel
What I see and hear is surreal
Knowing your sounds aren't real

Time lapses back to when,
Reflecting on the times, now and then
Wishing you were back again

Thanky! Lots n lots! It goes with anything when time is measured. Though ye knows its true meaning, at least by a recent event. In a way it kinda cheers me up more than brings me down. One needs to release and let go, to see the joy of finding wee bits were never lost.
