Hourglass

The sands of time ... my crazy mind is thinking again

A crystal hourglass
As the sands
Flow inside makes
That every second
That every minute
That every hour
That every day
Wasted precious time

A measuring time
By the hourglass,
That contain tiny
Grain of sands.
Dictates your time
Will have control
Over your life

What will happen
If it runs
Out on you?

That you base
Making a precious
Life and dreams.
Stopping the time
As impossible as
Sun won't shine,
Having a choice
Dreaming or living.

If the hourglass
Breaks in two.
Inside your palm
Lays the sands
As you close
Your hand over
Trying to stop
It keeps flowing.

Have you stopped
The time of
Our mortal life

Make it worth
The way you
Want to live,
Make it last
A lifetime to
Have a dream,
Feel the love,
And come alive.

Making precious memories
Cherish the people
That matter most
Treasure every moment
Makes you happy
Learn from pains
Makes you grow
Create something special

When time comes
Nothing you will
Feel sorry about.
