Fingers of time
Love sacrificed on the alter of time,
Too far to reach now, too far to fly,
Gone now forever, just a memory remains,
Of a love that stood strong in its firm lovin' ways.
He'd known her forever, she dwelt in his heart,
They were always together, never apart,
'Til the hour came when time intervened in their lives,
And the doctor's said 'no, there's no way she'll survive'.
The shock and the heartbreak, two lovers in awe,
One destined to stay, one soul destined to go,
There is no compromise, and nowhere to hide,
When the fingers of time point to time for goodbye.
