As Years And Life Thus Ever Onward Flow

As Years And Life Thus Ever Onward Flow Time's wheel grinds ever so finely with ease Its purpose oft mysteriously deep As moon-tide's pull stirs magnificent seas Dare we pray for love and peace in our sleep? Ever so slowly but surely wheel spins Without a whispering creak or loud moan Do we pray forgiveness for mortal sins Such leeway disappears when we are gone. It hums in tune to invisible clock Tho' its revolutions we try to slow In dark midnight hours we hear its tick-tock From that very first breath older we grow. As years and life thus ever onward flow This world teaches us Fate's hand has it way Do we ever learn we are not its show And thus seek to prepare for judgement day. Time's wheel grinds ever so finely with ease Its purpose oft mysteriously deep As moon-tide's pull stirs magnificent seas Dare we pray for love and peace in our sleep? Robert J. Lindley, 6-22-2020 Rhyme, ( Time is an unbreakable glass that never fills )
