Returning to Forever
The nights are short, the days are long
The weeks are seemingly endless.
Some days I feel I don’t belong
The best I can do is guess
Which song will follow this
In the soundtrack of my life.
I wish it could all be elation and bliss
But alas there will always be some strife
All I can do is go with the flow
Follow the river at every turn
Don’t take it too fast, don’t take it too slow
It seems sometimes you’ll always return
To where you started without a voice.
The sun a blazing comet
Arching across the blue
Banishing each and every thing
That darkness tried to strengthen.
Not a single drop of rain
Clouds ejected from the sky
Streams do nothing more than trickle
O’er the dusty land.
Lakeside lots overflowing
Children eager to leap in
Cool off in the dark cold depths
Climb back out, run in again.
Supposedly the days are long
The hours seem so short
Time flies by before you can do
Half of what you wanted to.
