Heather Burns


The Web Of Time


In the rustling of the leaves
someone called my name

a voice so familiar
same old haunting refrain

hearing you on that Autumn day
My mind seemed to float away

to another time and place
visions of your handsome face

feelings just won't go away
keeps returning day by day

Caught up in the web of time
ever returning in my rhymes

if I could take tomorrow
trade it for today

I'd wrap my arms around you
never let you walk away.
