Written by: Christopher Pitts

time has a pendulum,
that swings to and fro,
with long and short hands,
that never let go...
a heart beat a second, or two, or three
with no regard for you and me.

time has a pendulum,
that swings back and forth,
counting down the days,
left here on earth.
a heartbeat a second, or two, or three,
that brings the fall of sky and sea.

time has a pendulum,
that we always see through,
because our eyes stay still,
when of course they should move,
a heartbeat a second, or two, or three,
blind to the things of what must be.

time has a pendulum,
that will one day stop.
we've climbed so high
just to suddenly drop
a heartbeat a second, or two, or three
all history of man, swept by the breeze.
