I close my eyes.
My heart pounds in my chest,
Convincing me, I'm alive;
This is real.

Not wanting to think,
I will not see you again,
I run...
Run against time.

Time ticks away,
I can hear it behind me,
Coming up fast on my heels,
Letting me know...

The seconds...
Minutes...
Hours...
Days...
Weeks...
Until, I have to say good-bye.

I ask time nothing, but to let me be with you,
To let me be, like no one else in your life,
To let me be you're every desire.

Time cannot hinder me,
My determination will carry me to you.
