Ribbon of Light

A life so short at the ending
Yet so long at the beginning
Time is nothing but it is everything
Existing as we are
Moving forwards and backwards
Up down and sideways
At the exact same time
Always colliding
These lives intertwine
One beginning with another
thoughts ending with the other
Yours mine and ours
Each of us
A ribbon of light
A line securely tied tight
When severed
Until it is nothing
This ride of intermingling pain and joy
Like a sweet n' salty treat
To live is not for nothing
And not for everything
This path walked by many is unforgiving
Yet enlightening
We are the same
But we are different
Some fill their living moments with all that is possible
Others leave theirs blank
A minute is short
But a second can last forever
