Sands of Time

Written by: Kimberly Fluitt

You lay beside me
But a million miles away
I feel as a grain of sand
In an antique hourglass
Nowhere to go but down
Just to be turned over and fall again
Why am I locked in this ocean of pain
Sea of heartache in which a lifetime remains
The days I’ve lived
Replay many times
And puts me in the place
Where I must hide
The sands of time are passing by
Reminding me I was born to die
When the time comes
I don’t know
Will I be young
Or will I be old
With a lifetime of accomplishments
Shrouded with love and pain
