Time


Time
One minute it was several years ago
Tomorrow is now today

Selfishly, I would ask your shadow to stay
Counting minutes of not Long Enough
Wondering if I said all that I needed to say


Passion is not wasted on the youth
I watch as you grasp it all
Drink deep of it's fountain


My head...so many words
A billion "I love You's"
So many lessons unlearned


I cast my fears upon the water
I lift you up to my Heavenly Father
Distance is only a prayer away

I give Him back the gift He gave me
Like a jewel, I held him for safe-keeping
One more for Your crown

I raised a man.
I raised a strong man
One that will make me proud.
