In Time

In time

rough edges
round and smooth
under persistent pressure
Hours give ways to days

Water flows
cascading from high above
Seconds tick by
really stands the test of time
Calendar pages turn
as life goes on

Hours crawl by
Years pass in a flash
People come and go
Faces change
Edges smooth
Months give way to years

Rain falls
washing everything clean
as the young get older
Time creeps up
Years pass
Cover your eyes
and pretend it isn’t so

Things change
All it takes is time
and pressure
Pressure and time

Water flows
Rough edges smooth
We all stand
until we fall
How could it be
that yesterday was so long ago?

The clock ticks
The calendar changes
The young age
The old make a stand
The world turns on

Day gives way to night
more night
eternal night
until day finally breaks again

Rivers flow
Waves crash
Thunder rolls

We all stand
until we fall

In time
