What’s with you, dear Time?
Gauging all in this soul of mine
What’s with you, bully Time?
Give me pause to rise and shine
What’s with you? Like some cage
Minding the sun to make me age
Thy tyranny is sheer dread
Without thee no life nor death
No sunset no sunrise
No blossoms nor tides
Earth would fester, earth would freeze
No leaves to dance in the breeze
When will you stand still
‘N let me soak love until
Filled with warmth, abounding joy?
Why endow me with passion ‘n keep me buoyed?
Then kill the feelings with passing whiles
Exhausting strength, thirsting more time
Big Bang’s the felon
Time’s the outcome
Since then, Universe in motion
Life ebbs and flows in sweet commotion
For all life time cruelly consumes
While renewal to splendidly resume
How can I love yours truly
Knowing even love’s eternity
Will close, infinity to deny?
Mercy of the clock, humans decry!
Oh Time, when can I gaze while standing
Life to hold still, for an instant’s passing?
To suck in beauty love and art
Without fear that all will depart
