Glued Down Hourglass

Tell me you love me
You don't know what tomorrow brings
The sun isn't free
So treasure the little things

Find the light
At the end of the tunnel
Don't take flight
Your happiness, don't pummel

You can't dwell on the past
Keep your eyes straight
Moments will pass you fast
Just believe in fate

The hourglass is glued down
That's a fact
Don't frown
Keep that smile in tact

Time is permanent
If you're alive
You're fortunate 
But you need to thrive

    I love the image of the hourglass, it may be a permanent fixture but the little grains of sand they are the breaths you take each morning, may he surround you with his majestic angels and take you to new heights where joy will be yours forever, love and light Vienna.
