Day to night, night to day;
Seeking to slow it, is there a way?
Fight, fight, fight;
Must get into the light.
Play, study, rest, work, rest;
Leaving your mark, the true final test.
Think, think, think;
Slowly, your ship begins to sink.
Struggle to reach the top;
Hoping your clock won’t stop.
Stay, stay, stay;
If just for one more day.
Punch in, punch out, punch in, punch out;
Head full of worry, mind full of doubt.
Roll, roll, roll;
Time takes its’ evil toll.
Time to reflect, mistakes in the past;
No chance for amends, Time moves too fast.
Seconds, minutes, hours;
No time for the flowers.
Contemplating life, fearful of death;
Time will win, the only sure bet.
Years, decades,… a lifetime;
Ever churning on, your clock continues to chime.
Finally,… through a child;
Proof,… I was here for a while.
No, no, no;
Realizing you’ve lost, it’s Time to go.
Even in death, your legacy begins again;
Fighting once more, knowing Time will win.
