COUNTING TIME


Samuel Taylor and Sons Pictures, Images and Photos

Oft' times it feels as if
we walk through life alone
no one there to hold our hand
no fellow feeling shown

Other times it seems like
the planet is too small
so many people crushing in
yet no soft place to fall

And then there come the times
that we'd like to run away
just become invisible
as life leads us astray

But there are mostly times
when living is a prize
when all it takes is pausing
to open up your eyes

Time can make us happy
when we take time to love
or lay out on a clear night
and count the stars above

At times we wish to slow
the minutes ticking by
just so we can savor all
the beauty felt inside

Time is a commodity
that can't be sold or bought
it heals old wounds and teaches
us the lessons that we've sought

So take your time and live today
with everything you've got
don't waste too many moments –
for time's gone like a shot
