THE ROCK

You were the rock Of the family You held us together And kept us strong You were like a lion When you roared Everybody listened An stood at attention That’s how powerful You were But father time Begin to chip away At the rock Who begins to crack Into small pieces Chipping and chipping Away at you until You turn into dust That flew away with The wind

Time and tide waits for noone. No one is so powerful that they can stop the march of time. Congratulations on your win in Brian's competition.
