Lost and trapped in time,
we give ourselves our own hourglass to spin.
Continuously rocking back and forth each day in this life we live.
Every moment becomes a new adv enture.
From dancing in the rain to crying at dawn,
another day writes a new story.
As I lay in the grass looking at the stars,
I am brought back to my childhood.
Running through the trees late at night,
feeling the wind in my hair.
But once the sun rises,
my happiness begins to fade as a new day is born
Living this life without you is hardly possible.
As it brings such sorrow to my soul.
I imagine running through the trees with you once again,
playing tag and telling stories,
missing every second,
while I recollect and adore each moment of time.
I spin in circles outside the church,
as my mother goes in to pray for a new beginning.
Where we all end up together again someday.
Then there’s my father who pretends like he is not hurt,
when we all know deep down he will never be the same.
For his mind will always be in a gloomier place.
But he continues to be strong like a rock for us all,
which never leaves or disappoints.
Allowing us all to be dependent on his emotion,
we remember the times we had and never forget
The most amazing memories,
for we will all be together lost in time again someday.
