THE CLOCK IS TICKING

Tomorrow is for dying Yesterday was for dreaming and hope Today is to stop repeating the violence of the past, but This present hour is to experience beauty and happiness Appreciating your beauty brings happiness to me Makes me realize they are you, both inseparable, but Only one hour of every day, for beauty, love and happiness? We have no time to waste; the clock is ticking Love is like trying to describe the drifting snowflakes Or holding onto the sun’s rays that heat your skin Love is like autumn’s shade that has smothered the summer colors Leaving behind only memories to be locked away I long to dream the dream of a lifetime With you the centerpiece in my dream You are the epitome of my love's aspirations What I live for Words sometimes belie our intentions, and desired passions may be thwarted prematurely by anticipation, but most welcomed when they are reciprocated Tomorrow is for dying Yesterday was for dreaming and hope Today, to avoid repeating the violence of the past, This lonely hour is to acknowledge the beauty of the world, to Love each other and find that elusive happiness We have no time to waste; the clock is ticking.
