a year can feel unreal  …..too far away

to see how to get there

a day can feel like it will never end

when faced with obstacles

or a day can feel like the wind

carried it away much too soon

an hour can feel like eternity

when waiting for an answer

a moment can feel like forever

if  your heart is breaking in two

lyrics ~

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun,
but it’s sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you’re older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time has gone, the song is over,
thought I’d something more to say

Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
When I come home cold and tired
It’s good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spells.

  1. So very true on all counts, Dani.

    • isn’t it strange how we can experience the passing of time so differently, even in the same day? thanks so much for stopping by, Mary! ♥

    • time may be linear {and i may be wrong about that} but it certainly passes at different speeds, doesn’t it? thanks so much for your visit, Jennifer! ♥

  2. Seems like forever since i talked with my Sista Poet!
