The seconds tick by more rapidly now;

Gone are the days when they creeped slowly by.

Gone are the days when I marveled at how

big the world was under an endless sky.

I have loved and I have lost many friends.

I have seen how quickly life can slip away

When you only look forward around the bend.

I do not want to waste another day.

I cherish the seconds that stretch on for hours

As we laugh about nothing in my place

As we walk below the city’s towers

As I bask in the beauty of your face.

I hope that when this all comes to an end

I’m left with fond memories and you as a friend.
