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

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

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

Time you have no master
You stay fresh always
As we fade away
Becoming the past
The rising sun
A never ending pattern
We only temporarily see

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

Oh dancing joker that is time
As you speed on by
In an endless cycle of change
We become more grounded
Our identity matures 
As the days go by 

Time only you can master
The past
The present
And the future

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

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 extension to
To my allotted span
I have no desire to live for eternity

Oh time I do respect thee
I am grateful for your blessing
You have made me
