Life is short and time flies by
Without my consent
And I find myself without a purpose
So I shut out the ticking of the clock
I hope for your release from pain
And I hope for my perseverance
Through the pain of us both.
For when I can I take the pain from your shoulders
So many people give up things they care about for “love”
But what if their love causes someone else pain,
Or kills a friendship that once stood strong?
Can I still smile upon the light kisses
Stars spin into galaxies
Passionate and ever-changing
They whirl by in a never-ending dance
Facing the dark with voices ringing.
