Equinox to equinox
A life as judged by ticking clocks
Stood near as our hearts beat fast
A moment in all time we wish could last;
Close your eyes I won’t forget your scent
When time has judged our drunken hearts be spent
In summer breeze I won’t forget your kiss
In latter days when time’s our nemesis;
The fire in your eyes that burns so bright
Will be a burning ember keeping sight
Glass of woe that keeps the ticking clear
That will always keep us close and keep us here;
Hands that keep a touch upon the dial
In the days that we must hope are worth our while;
Worth it every time I see you smile.
Pillow where we rest our weary heads
Beneath a quilt of timeless tiny threads
When by the hourglass that keeps you right
One day you know we’ll say our last good night
So close your eyes and wish these days to last
And hold them dear so label them the past;
Yet still I’m cursed to wish my life away
With the ticking that gets louder every day.
