Treasure Island

Cosmic Dreamer

(12/04/1966 / The Cosmos...)

Time of my life...

Slowly sliding like hourglass sands,
My time is slipping through my hands.
I hear the tick and tock of passing time,
The clock of my life continues to chime.

My heart thumps out it's constant beat,
As I move through life on nimble feet.
Moving forward at a constant stride,
Seeking the one who'll stand by my side.

Marching ever onward in life's great parade,
Marking out the time that man has made.
To measure the day and mark out the night,
A perfect cycle of time, a constant flight.

The pull of destiny as moons decide,
The call of death as the planets collide.
The time of my life slowly ticks away,
As dust to dust I shall end my days...

Spread the love... The peace will follow...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
