Abused by we who 
Know no limit in
Ourselves or others
Time it seems is never our friend 

Blessed with the ability 
To pass on by
Time goes but never says goodbye

Time exasperates us who
Wish for more 

Oh devil that is time 
Stop if only for a while 
Let us see the folly 
Of trying to catch the wind

May time who
Has no master 
And has its own agenda
Bring to us an understanding
Of we being here 
But for now 

Time stays fresh always 
As we fade away
Becoming the past 
Time starts with the rising sun
A never ending pattern
We only temporarily see

May time though fleeting
Increase our patience 
And understanding of ourselves
And those who pass us by in this life

Time oh elusive mother of hope
Master of our fears 
Keep us moving 
For every changing as you do

The more you pass on by 
Oh dancing joker that is time 
The more grounded we are 
With a past 
A past mastered only by you 

Time my short stay friend 
Take me along as you go 
Till my clock ticks no more 
When my journey has ended
Through this maze 
That is life  

Oh dearest time you are
My closest companion
You make me what I am
And watch me grow
You are the only constant 
I know 

I wish for no more time 
Than I am allotted 
I have no desire to live for eternity
Oh time I do respect thee
I am grateful for your blessing

You have made me
