TIME (PART 5) .


time is what you look forward for tomorrow,
time you can't lend or borrow,
time is what it takes to give birth to a child,
time can make you cry or smile,
time is what it takes for you to walk a mile,
time is what we have in trial,
time grants you parole,
time in prison from you is what they stole,
time makes me think and wonder,
time can take you right under,
time can make you cheat,
time can bring you to defeat,
time could put you to sleep,
time in a bottle is what i wish i could keep.

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
