melody

Daylight waning,

Shadows falling.

Moon is rising,

Night winds calling.

 

Time drifts by

On silken wings,

Far and low

A song it sings.

 

It sings of love

And letters sent,

It sings of loss

And years misspent.

 

It sings of birth

As life begins,

It mourns as death,

Our journey ends.

 

It sings the melody

Of our lives

And sometimes makes us

Wonder why

 

We didn’t, when we

Had the chance,

Change the notes,

The refrain perhaps.

 

The past is gone,

It can’t be changed;

Look forward now

With knowledge gained.

 

Listen close in the

Hushed, still night

To the song of time

On its endless flight.
