My Battle With Time
You came into my life - when my time is running short.
I got nothing to offer you, but what is left of my life.
My battle with time - I know I can not win.
No one can win the battle with time. Time always has the
upper hand. How I wish that I could buy lots of time and
spend it all with you, but not even a millionaire has been
able to buy a second more of time.
When your time is up - it's up. It is better late than never,
so I welcome any time that I can spend with you. I will just
promise to love you for whatever time I have left.
I won't try to fight this battle - I know I can not win. When the
clock starts going slow, I will know, my time is near. Something
will tell me it's over. I will just say - good bye my love. My time
is up and I must go...
