“Where has all the time gone?” you say,
As you sit in that chair every day.
It’s wherever you want it to be,
It’s forever entwined memories.
Look at my hands, old and strong;
At all they have done and been through.
I’ve had a hundred jobs in my life,
Every one of them, a step to be free.
I’m not as young,
I’m not as young as I used to be.
Look at my eyes and all they’ve seen;
The good and the bad through my days.
But I wouldn’t have it any other way,
For what I’ve seen, others only get to dream.
My children have grown and spread far;
No-one stays in one place anymore.
The future is theirs to be had;
I remember when the world was made for me.
Now a day never passes me by
That I ask if what we had was really true?
As you slipped through my arms in the night
And whispered in my ear “I love you.”
Now the sea sings to me a timeless song
And the mountains breathe a sigh of relief.
They are friends to me now.
All else ceases to be.
