Unwritten Soul

Only Time Knows

No one knows
Where is life now sending us
Scripture of destiny remain untold
Written in tears and in smiles
Unreadable till we reached at times
So I ask myself no more
only time knows
only time knows...

What for you, what for me
Hidden in mystery of time
No one knows when it comes
Delivery of our fates and destiny
To reach our hearts and life line
That lies between day and night
Earliest dawn or late midnight
Only time
Only time knows
when it will be revealed
The secret that it hides
For us to read and find
What for you and what for me

Nature of Secret
Always to be unshared
But when the moment comes,
Surprises explode in the air
Burst and fill the atmosphere
By the letter of final time
When, i don't know
Only time knows

What for you and what for me
Tonight another read delivered
A scripture piece of mystery revealed
By the ink of sorrow it was written
Told our road is dividing two
Our hands sweep the air to wave the breeze
Farewell my friend, my dear friend
Only time
Only time knows
When i can persuade my heart
Surrender that's all i can confide
No escape we can find
Just take it to walk with
What for you and what for me

Sound of past echoes in mind
Where old laughter played
Carve the same smile on our faces again
Rainbow of days stay In my eyes,
And feels, remains in hearts
Is what forever for you and for me

Who knows
If the roads will be in one flow again
Have faith in hearts, i wont change
To bring what we have from past
And to wait in our new days
I believe in that, but
Only time
Only time knows
So my friends
Never say goodbye
We don't know what the end

No one knows
Where is life now sending us
Scripture of destiny always untold
Bound in cries and smiles
Untold till reached at times
Only time knows

Only time
Only time knows...

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Of course God knows, but time is the one who keep the secret..
This is a lyric that i wrote for my friend who recently need to go
Where and why, no i dont know..things happened in our days
we never know, never we will be, as we are in puzzle in life
some we know some we never we know, maybe it is better
But God knows what the best behind all of fate he wrote
The lyric is for my ballad song with the theme, farewell
but it not a goodbye song, because only time knows
when we will meet again
and only time knows
I believe it_Unwritten Soul

    So true, What a very sound wisdom, Soul.
    Only time knows. We can plan, we can prepare, we can expect, we can anticipate, but what will really happen, only time knows. I love the whole idea. How much do our actions and our thoughts determine what will happen in the future? (Report) Reply

    Please don't let me be the last one to go! To step out the door and this Time shut it and
    take the last deep breath and walk away alone with no one looking... (Report) Reply

    we are all gathered at the door... laughing, giggling... then we all get silent and one of us takes a deep
    breath and steps forward and starts walking away down the path. We all are transfixed... stare as the individual
    slowy gets smaller and smaller and then disappears. We are silent for a moment... then giggling and laughing
    erupts again till it is Time for the next one to go. (Report) Reply

    Although we put so much effort into life, whatever happens to us is inevitable - it's a strange paradox.
    This is a truly beautiful poem about accepting the inevitable. (Report) Reply

    None of us know our destiny, and it can change from day to day. I think it is better that we don't know where we are headed - great write as always Soul. (Report) Reply

    Time knows it and then Unwritten Soul knows a half of it.....
    The use of imagination has never been so philosophically well depended in your poems dear Soul. It is a very fine poem that makes one sit back and think though I think God knows not so much as Unwritten Soul knows... (Report) Reply

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
